Add sausages and fry until starting to brown (4-5 minutes), add onion, garlic, chilli and sage and cook until onion is soft (4-5 minutes). Increase heat to high, add wine, mixing well, and cook until evaporated. Reduce heat to low, add tomatoes and chicken stock, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and simmer, stirring frequently, until reduced and sauce just coats sausage (25-30 minutes).
