At last, something that the whole family enjoyed. Used fresh veg, so it took a little longer to cook, and also added some mixed herbs. Next time, I've got to use larger quantities as it went down so well everyone wanted more!

This was quick, delicious and filling. The kids loved it too!

This was quick and surprisingly tasty (I added some basil, garlic powder, oregano and a pinch of chilli powder for an extra kick). Went down a treat with hungry boys, and tasted great re-heated, too. A great staple!
