Spicy sausage casserole with couscous recipe

This warming spicy sausage casserole is very suitable for the colder months of the year. Feel free to replace the sausages with a meat-free variety or leave them out to make this vegetarian-friendly!

I’m using sausages from Grandad’s Sausages and they are really amazing. I really recommend trying them as they don’t skimp on flavours and the sausages remain moist after cooking! They are based locally in Bury too! The vegetables were from my vegetable box from Veg Box People!
