    Really simple to make ( which is essential for me as a non cook! ) but delicious, and was enjoyed by all the family. The did add some thyme and bay leaves to give it more flavour though  -  20 Nov 2011

    my first casserole I've made, added red wine to the gravy, used shallots instead of onions and used button chestnut mushrooms and it was SOOOO good! Me and my husband finished the lot between us in one go  -  14 Mar 2014
