Lightly brown sausages and cut each sausage into 3 pieces and place in a casserole dish then add the onions, capsicum and mushrooms.
Melt butter in a saucepan over a low/medium heat. Keeping on a low/medium heat, stir the flour into the butter to make a smooth paste then stir in the milk. Keep stirring until the paste/flour is absorbed.
Add tomato paste and stir in. Add the herbs, spices and sugar; stirring constantly. Heat gently for 2-3 minutes; then stir in the stock.
Once sauce is blended pour into the casserole dish. Stir to ensure all of the ingredients are covered.
Cook in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. If adding the apple, core and dice the apple then add for the last 20 minutes of cooking.
