Preheat oven to 180ºC / 350ºF

Fry the sausages in a casserole dish until golden brown, remove with a slotted spoon. You may need to do this in two batches

Add the onions, leeks, garlic, celery and sage and cook until the mix starts to brown slightly

Add the wine, stock, passata and bay leaves and then season with salt and pepper

Add the sausages back in 

Put the lid on and cook in the oven for 20 minutes

Meanwhile, place your potatoes in a medium sized pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer gently until cooked. About 20 minutes

Once cooked, drain and mash the potatoes and add the butter and milk. Stir over a low heat until the butter has melted and the mash is piping hot. Season and add the chives. Set aside

Remove the casserole from oven, stir in chopped parsley and serve with the mash
