Make larger batches and freeze in portion sizes.
If you don't have red wine, deglaze the pan with a small dash of balsamic vinegar. If your sauce has evaporated a lot and it is sticking, just add a little water and stir it in.
I find this one really quick and easy to make after a long day at work. It doesn't create much mess or too many dishes to wash. A great meal for anyone training for a sports event - I always ate it coming up to kickboxing competitions for extra slow release energy. - 14 Dec 2011
My wife and i really enjoyed this recipe,1 less chilli next time though,bit hot!! - 20 Nov 2012
Really gorgeous sauce, we made this using left over pigs in blankets from christmas, chopped them up and fried them in place of the bacon, we also used normal red chillies rather than birdseye so it was more warm than hot. The red onion makes it beautifully sweet, I basically never want to eat food that isnt this ever again. - 13 Jan 2018
