- Spray a non-stick saucepan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the sausages and brown on all sides, then transfer to an ovenproof dish and set aside.
- To make the sauce, add the chopped onions to the saucepan and cook for 5 minutes until brown and softened, adding a splash of water if they stick. Add the bay leaf, thyme, sage, tomato purée, garlic, stock cube, Bovril, Worcestershire sauce and 1 litre boiling water and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.

- Discard the bay leaf and blitz the sauce until smooth, either with a stick blender or in your food processor. Return the sauce to the pan if you used a food processor, add the sliced red onions and simmer for 15 minutes or until reduced by one-third.
- Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.
- Add the squash and mushrooms to the ovenproof dish and pour over the sauce. Top with the rosemary sprigs and roast for 30 minutes or until everything is cooked and tender.
