What you will need

Pot for vegetables

Grill or equivalent to brown






Place the potatoes and carrots in salted water and cook until tender. (Omit potato if you are using instant mash)


Drain and mash with the butter, milk or cream and pepper.


While the potatoes are cooking, heat the oil in a pan and fry the sausages until brown all over and cooked through.


While sausages are browning, add the onions and garlic. (If there is too much fat, drain some off). Meanwhile Pre-heat the grill.


Remove sausages from the pan and cut the sausages in half, return to the pan at the same time add the ratatouille and beans, season and heat through.


Pour the sausage mixture into a fireproof dish, cover with the potato and carrot mash (instant mashed potato, without the carrot, could be used) and spread out evenly.


Sprinkle the grated cheese over and decorate with slices of tomato or pepper.


Grill until the cheese browns. Garnish with parsley.
