I'm not really sure what but I definitely felt like this meal was missing something?! Just tasted quite plain and the potatoes took a lot longer to soften than 14 minutes and added a bit of extra boiling water as it was drying up, maybe that got rid of a lot of flavour. I had it with garlic bread and that did compliment it. - 27 Jul 2015
