I tried this recipe yesterday, and was really impressed at how easy it was, as I usually make the sauce on the hob. I will no longer be using my hob for this dish. I also added bacon strips to one layer and reduced the cooking time to 40 mins. Everyone loved it, next time I will add onions so the veggies can eat it. - 27 Jun 2013


Absolutely loved this recipe...also added some semi skinned milk, bacon and roast chicken pieces and sprinkled breadcrumbs on top as suggested by a previous reviewer. Will definitely do again. - 25 Mar 2014


very very easy and tastes good. I added breadcrumbs and paprika to the top. Also was baked, bubbling and thoroughly cooked after half hour in fan assisted oven. - 21 Sep 2013
