Lightly brown sausages and cut each sausage into 3 pieces and place in a casserole dish.
Finely chop the onions and pepper. Slice mushrooms. Add to the casserole dish.
Melt butter in a pan over a low/medium heat. Keeping the pan on a low/medium heat, stir the flour into the butter to make a smooth paste, then stir in the milk. Keep stirring until the paste/flour is absorbed. Add tomato puree and stir in. Add the herbs, spices and sugar, stirring constantly. Heat gently for 2-3 minutes, then stir in the stock.
Once sauce is blended pour in to the casserole dish. Stir to ensure all of the ingredients are covered.
Cook in a pre-heated oven at 180 C / Gas 4 for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. If adding the apple, core and chop the apple and add for the last 20 minutes of cooking.
Love this recipe. Like others I added a tin (small) tin of tomatoes and used a little less stock. Tastes great (just having a bowlful now!).
Easy to make, although I was a little unsure of my butter/flour paste, it all came good with plenty of stirring.
Can heartily reccommend. - 12 Mar 2013
