Altered ingredient amounts. I added some dried chilli flakes to give it a kick - 27 Oct 2010


Altered ingredient amounts. Added a bit more herbs, also added a bit of paprika. Used passata instead of chopped tomatoes, which cuts out the 2nd step. - 19 Apr 2010


Delicious. Super-easy to make and with a million possibilities depending on the veg you like/have in the fridge! - 17 Nov 2011
