Jan's Sausage Casserole

Seriously good, tasty and easy sausage casserole - perfect for cold nights.
A week or so ago here in the UK, Summer gave Autumn a miss and went straight back into Winter!  And so my sausage casserole or whatever you might want to call it was invented.  
 Anyway, on with the food. I had bit's and bobs in the fridge but nothing that would make a dinner. What I mean is, I had one courgette and one red pepper and some celery, not going to get fat on that are we? 
I did have sausages in the freezer that along with a good dollop of mashed potato, the perfect cold weather dinner was done.

Mojo Sauce - Canarian Red Sauce

Back from our holidays in Fuerteventura and what a fantastic time we had!
I've never eaten so much fresh fish and paella in my life and besides that was one of my favorite things was Mojo sauce - I love the stuff!   
It seems there are so many different versions of this sauce but the one served in the Barcleo Jandia Playa hotel was extra yum.  So, with that in mind I was on a mission to get the recipe and I tracked down the man that made it.
