Super simple, simply delicious, delicious and nutritious. For a down in the dumps kinda day, this is a meal I need! There’s also a cheeky tip to add a bit of spice if that’s your thing!

Sausage Ratatouille

Preparation time:10 minutes
Cooking time:45 minutes
Total time:55 minutes

Serves: 4


1 pack Waitrose 2 Sweet Peppers, seeded and cut into long pieces
1 aubergine, cut into
3cm chunks
1 courgette, thickly sliced
1 red onion, thickly sliced
4 cloves garlic, unpeeled
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
250g pack essential Waitrose Cherry Tomatoes
340g pack 10 Heck Chicken Italia Sausages
1 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Sundried Tomato Paste
150ml hot chicken stock
Crusty bread, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Place the peppers, aubergine, courgette, red onion and garlic in a large roasting tin. Drizzle over the olive oil, scatter with rosemary and toss together, then roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in the cherry tomatoes then sit the sausages on top. Return to the oven for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir together the sundried tomato paste and stock, and pour into the tin. Increase the oven temperature to 220ºC, gas mark 7. Return the ratatouille to the oven for a further 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the sausages are nicely browned and completely cooked through with no pink meat. Divide between bowls and serve with crusty bread.

Cook’s tip:  For a spicy flavour, try adding chunks of chorizo to the recipe with the ingredients in step 2!
