450g tomatoes, quartered
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 onion, sliced
1 clove of garlic, finley chopped
1 chilli, finely chopped
4 tbsp mixed herbs
salt and black pepper
175g mushrooms, sliced

For the topping
85g cheddar cheese, grated

Place the leeks, tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic and chilli in a shallow ovenproof dish and pour over the oil, herbs and seasoning and mix together.
Place the dish on the floor grid set on the floor of the roasting oven and cook for 10-15 minutes.
Mix in the mushrooms then arrange the sausages on top. Return to the roasting oven and cook for a further 35 minutes, turning the sausages over occasionally to brown all their sides.
