    Ingredients

      2 peppers (red and yellow)
      2 courgettes
      6 medium tomatoes
      5-6 tblsp olive oil
      2-3 tsp dried thyme or dried mixed herbs
      Pack of herby sausages (enough for the people you are feeding)

    1. Heat the oven to Gas mark 4, 180° or 160° fan
    2. De-seed the peppers and chop each one into about 6 or 8 pieces
    3. Cut the courgettes into half lengthways then into chunks
    4. Cut the tomatoes in half
    5. Place all the veg in a roasting tray and drizzle the oil over the veg
    6. Sprinkle the herbs on top and give it all a good stir
    7. Nestle the sausages in the veg
    8. Bake for 45 mins to an hour
    9. Serve with your choice of carbohydrate – crusty bread or jacket potatoes are good because they will soak up the lovely juices

Want to add a taste of the Mediterranean to a simple family supper?

To rustle up a dish using just a few ingredients that takes mere minutes to prep before you pop it into the oven and leave it to cook while you catch up with the news or watch an episode of your favourite soap?

Next weekend’s guest on Girls Around Town has the just the recipe you need and, given that sausages are the key ingredient, it’s one that’s guaranteed to be a hit with the kids!

Former co-presenter Sue Jackson, now the owner of Sue’s Kitchen, will be on the phone to the studio in the second hour of the show to talk you through the details of her Mediterranean Vegetable Sausage Bake.

And you don’t even need to stop what you’re doing to scribble them down because the recipe will be here on the Girls Around Town website just as soon as the show is over!

Sue will also be sharing details of some of her upcoming cookery classes and explaining how through her newly-launched Facebook goup, Terrible Cook to Terrific Cook with Sue’s Kitchen, she’s now on a mission to help members turn kitchen disasters into triumphs, learning not only from her but from fellow members too.

Make sure you’re tuned to 107.8FM or listening online from just after 11.10am on Sunday to join June and Sue…

Especially if you’re one of those terrible cooks who wants to find out how to become terrific!!

Show your local market a little love this Sunday

Looking for a way to spend an hour or two this Sunday?

Well, from 10am to 12 noon you’ll be listening to your favourite weekend show on Radio Newark of course.

But afterwards you’ll have plenty of time to head over to Newark town centre to browse among the stalls of this month’s Artisan, Pre-loved and Eco Market, which will be open from 9am to 3pm

And if you’re tuned in to Girls Around Town first, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect thanks to this week’s guest who’ll be chatting to June about just that!

Ian Harrison will be on the phone to the studio in the second hour of the show to report on the first market in the series, which took place on Sunday 25 April.

He’ll have details too of some of the different things on offer this weekend – set in one of the oldest and most attractive market places in the whole of the UK, you’ll find a range of artisan traders, entertainment and food along with vintage finds and unique quirky crafts.

Make sure you’re listening online or tuned to 107.8FM from 11.10am to hear what Ian has to say before you wander into town to take a look for yourself.

Who knows, you might even be able to start your Christmas shopping early – that’s June’s plan anyway!
