  1. Preheat the oven. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a saucepan, and gently cook the onion, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the garlic and mixed herbs to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the spinach, stock and cream and simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until the sauce reduces and develops a thicker consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and fry the sausages for 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. Rub 1/2 tbsp margarine/butter around the base and sides of an ovenproof dish. Dry the sliced potatoes on paper towels and use half to line the base of the dish, overlapping each slice slightly. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon half of the spinach and cream mixture over the potatoes. Put the sausages on top and cover with the remaining spinach and cream mixture. Finish with the remaining potatoes layered over the top.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked and the top is golden brown. Serve immediately.
