Sausage Tray Bake with Fresh Pesto

Sausage Tray Bake with Fresh Pesto. All you need is a pack of sausages and whatever needs using up in the fridge. This is a great midweek meal, a great budget meal, a great crowd pleaser and a great meal to throw together if you’re unorganised or short of time.


Serves 4

8-12 good quality sausages 

2 peppers cubed

2 courgettes roughly chopped

2 red onions cut into wedges

3 garlic cloves bashed

200g cherry tomatoes

300g new potatoes left whole

Fresh Pesto and fresh basil to serve

Fresh Pesto

150g cashew nuts

50g basil leaves picked

70g grated Pecorino or Parmesan

60ml extra virgin olive oil

Juice of a lemon


Put the sausages and potatoes in a roasting tray and drizzle with some olive oil. Roast in a hot oven (200 degrees) for 10 minutes.

Add all the remaining ingredients apart from the pesto and basil and season.

Blitz the pesto ingredients in a processor or bullet.

Return the tray to the oven for 35-40 minutes.

Serve with the pesto and fresh basil leaves.
