Really tasty - so long as you like rosemary. Although you'd probably make something else if you didn't! I substituted black eye beans as that's what I had in the cupboard and fresh cherry tomatoes mixed with a salad tomato as i was running low. Still tasted good and was really easy to prepare. - 25 May 2015
