Sausage Casserole, More A Method Than A Recipe

I really didn't fancy this at all but it's cold and wet today, Joe loves casseroles and every-one at the slow cooker FB site raves about something called Deep Down South Sausages that involve snags, tinned toms, Worcester sauce, garlic and 2 t of brown sugar. We had Spaghetti Putanesca last night so I didn't want another tomato based meal tonight and adapted this after looking through the files of the SC site.

500 gms of sausages(these can be any variety/chopped or left whole, fresh or frozen solid!)
2 sliced onions
1 chopped apple
1/2 a chopped zucchini and 2 chopped tomatoes that had seen better days

1 heaped teaspoon of hot curry powder
1 can of cream of chicken soup and half a can of water
chopped garlic
splash of Worcester sauce

Yuck I thought...I didn't even particularly like the smell as it was cooking BUT when I tasted it I was so impressed, those flavours melded beautifully, the sauce is thick and creamy and I'm sold!
I had some very lean turkey sausages($3) so the whole dinner cost under $5 for 3-4 serves, it was so good over some mashed sweet potatoes and I'll make it again definitely. The vegies can be changed around to use up what you have, potatoes and/or beans would be lovely cooked in the sauce and you could serve it on rice or pasta too so it's very versatile.

Joe absolutely loved it as I thought he would :)

Hope you are keeping well and warm,

Me: What! Why? They're the Daddy Longlegs, right?
