This sausage and sweet potato traybake has to be one of the best family meals of all time – it’s all cooked in one tray, you can almost use whatever you have in the fridge or the cupboard and it doesn’t need any fussing over.  The tomatoes turn into a delicious sauce and the whole thing is cooked in about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Voila. Supper is served.
