We first cooked this for a crowd last Christmas, but now use smaller quantities for the two of us as a regular 'leftovers' dish. I interchange mozzarella and mascarpone depending on what's in fridge.

We had this with pasta & a green salad to use up the last of our turkey, we stirred in some mascarpone as suggested on the chicken cacciatore - it was a lovely change from turkey curry.

Delish, made this 3 times since christmas already. Used a teaspoon of chipotle chilli paste when frying onions for a bit of a kick

This was lovely and so easy to make. I added some chillies when I was frying the onion and garlic to give it a little kick and used worcester sauce instead of vinegar. I also mixed it with pasta as I saw an earlier comment suggesting it and I used buffalo mozzarella :)

Absolutely delicious and so simple. Easily halved the recipe to make it for 2, but kept the full amount of cheese, which was needed. Now a firm favourite in my house.

This is a really easy and tasty way to use up turkey leftovers, really delicious, and isn't too tomatoey with 3 tins, great with pasta.

I'm sure it is lovely (<3 the chicken cacciatore recipe elsewhere on this site), but I don't think the picture makes it look very appetizing.

Very tasty! I used low fat mozzarella to make it a bit healthier.

This was easy to make and very tasty. I made it exactly to the recipe and added some grated parmesan to the breadcrumbs for the topping. I will be making it again.

Well my 2 lads wolfed it back. Prepared the sauce first this morning & went to foot ball. Villa beat Blackpool 1-0 so all happy in our household. got back from match at 6.30 shoved the oven on, grated the cheese ( only had cheddar & left over Gorgonzola & the breadcrumbs. 1/2 hr in oven. & worked a treat. wife's away this weekend & I was a superhero in the kitchen & taking them for a beer & footy. We will do it again....
