    This was delicious and not at all complicated to make even though I was a bit worried about making the sauce as I don't normally do things like that - you just add the liquid really gradually. All the ingredients were things you are likely to have already. You could use slightly less veg and more meat if you liked but this was nice and healthy and because there were lots of veg I just did broccoli to go with it and mash.  -  14 Aug 2015
