    This dish is great for parties. I've cooked it for over 30 people. Serve it with rice and green salad. It freezes well. Especially good in winter.

    This was lovely but a little watery - not sure where I went wrong but I did only cook for 3 so probably got the liquid ratio wrong! My son really enjoyed it though and he can be a fussy eater! Will definitely cook it again.  -  08 Feb 2014
