    Went down a storm! Served first for a supper party, just added mushrooms and served with chunky roasties, green beans and carrots. Compliments from everyone. Have recently made it into a one pot meal for 2. Just halved everything and added, cubed potatoes, carrots and peas. Served with crusty bread. Lovely recipe, thank you x  -  18 Feb 2015


    This recipe went down really went, very nice flavour which is very easy to make. Added a chilli to add a little extra spice, but tasted very nice without this addition  -  23 Sep 2013
