I made this last night and added tinned tomatoes as suggested. This was a great quick and easy meal and I would certainly make again.

Really like it, added mushrooms and cherry tomatoes instead of the tinned but very good, looking forward to trying the left overs in tacos.

I tried this the other night absolutely delicious and as suggested I added some chopped tomatoes as I think it would have been a bit dry without it, very easy mid-week meal.

This was delicious and bursting with flavours that you could enjoy hot or cold. I added a tin of chopped tomatoes like NicolaJane recommended. Perfection!!
