Lovely for a lunch. I used cooked frozen (defrosted) king prawns and green beans and sundried tomatoes instead of the peppers (because i dont like peppers) and it worked well.

This was easy, tasty and would be a 5* apart from the fact the portions were not enough! Only make in these quantities if you are after a "light" lunch or supper!
