    My honest answer is - I don't know, you could try the recipe and just add Quorn sausages to the cassorole for the last hour, sorry I couldn't be more help to you.

    What sort of lentils? Green, red, etc... My guess would be something more sturdy, like green, but would be interested to know if a certain type was specified. This sounds really nice.

    Yes, I would agree that green lentil's would 'hold' their shape better when cooking, thank you Minders.

    I made this last night. I only did half a recipe and it made LOADS!!! Even though I only made half the recipe, I still used a whole tin of tomatoes, juice and all, as I felt it would need the extra moisture. I'm glad I did. I used Tesco low fat cumberland sausages (1 syn each) cos they're really peppery. I also added a dash of balsamic vinegar to brighten it up a bit and half a tsp smoked paprika. I must say, this is a very tasty and filling meal. I served it with lots of steamed veg, like savoy cabbage, sprouts, sweetcorn, etc. Very nice. :D
