Very easy to make and very tasty. Has become a regular favourite. Never yet found Monteroy Jack cheese, used cheddar instead! 6/2/16 Found Monteroy Jack cheese and enjoyed the taste and texture. - 07 Feb 2014


This was so easy and very delicious. It says serves 6 but id say 4. Definitely going to make this one of my regular meals. I had some spring onions left which I chopped and mixed with the tomato - 13 Jan 2014


I can't tell you how many times I've made this -served it at a Christmas lunch for the non meat eaters who wanted " something involving fish and pasta ", on a canal boat holiday for 4 ravenous crew members and even as cold leftovers at a barbeque ,it's one of my most requested recipes .don't be tempted to miss out the mustard ( unless you hate it )as I think it makes all the difference - 18 Jul 2016
