I like to make most of my meals from scratch. I get a real sense of satisfaction from mixing together different herbs and spices and getting the flavours I’m looking for. However, there are times when I just don’t want to spend long getting dinner ready. I want something quick to prepare, easy and tasty, without taking the really lazy option of a ready meal (although I am often guilty of that too!). With a newborn baby in the house as well as a toddler, I am increasingly looking for ways of making mealtimes easier, while still eating fairly healthily.
Sleep deprived, and with the reality of how busy life with two children can be beginning to hit home, it seemed like ideal timing to try out the Schwartz Sausage Casserole Recipe Mix. Casseroles are perfect for anyone with a busy lifestyle. With this recipe, as long as you can find some time to chop some vegetables, it’s almost no work at all to actually put the casserole together. Exactly what I needed.
The Schwartz Sausage Casserole Mix is flavoured with tomato, paprika and oregano. It comes as a powder that you mix with water and pour on top of the rest of the casserole. I followed the recipe on the pack but slightly adapted it by adding a sliced red pepper as I knew that would go well with the flavours in the sauce. You could add any vegetables you wanted though. I served it with jacket potatoes as I could then just cook everything in the oven at the same time. Although mashed potato would be lovely too, why give yourself the extra work?
We really enjoyed the casserole. The sauce has a lovely paprika flavour that goes well with sausages and for a packet sauce mix it is very tasty. My husband even licked the plate clean!
