Not sure that this recipe needs such a large quantity of wine, the taste of cumberland sausage and herbs with a nice stock should suffice for flavour

My husband is coeliac so used gluten free sausages and gluten free flour and it was delicious - all the family ate it.

... and leave to cook for a further 10 minutes before serving.

I can recommend it. Well within the cooking abilities of the average dad, plus you get to finish the bottle.
