Sausage and Roasted Tomato Bake

This week my Archchi came to visit. This is my  Sri-lankan grandmother, fondly known to the whole family as Archchi (granny in Singhala). She lives in London and has the greenest fingers of anyone I know. Years ago she had 2 allotments, now its just her garden that produces mainly vegetables, lots of vegetables. From her recent visit I ended up with 3kg cherry tomatoes, 3 red cabbages, a large carrier bag full of apples and a pile of greens plus coriander. Lush.

The cherry tomatoes were at the stage of needing to be eaten so I decided to roast them with garlic, rosemary and balsamic vinegar. Top this off with sausages and you have a super simple, yet tasty meal. Went down very well with the family and I got the comments of “succulent, tasty and satisfying” from the husband, followed but mmmmmm from the toddler. Praise indeed.

I used gluten free sausages for ours and served it with rice but you could serve it with pasta, polenta or mashed potato.
