I thought this dish was delicious. However I too ended up with too much liquid and so simmered uncovered for a little longer to evaporate it off.

Very simple and healthy and now a staple mid-week menu meal for me - I did end up with too much liquid in the recipe though?

was a little dubious on this dish myself but absolutely loved it, will definitely be making it again. Didn't find it too watery though may have been because i didn't use any wine and simmered it for longer than it said by mistake.

I tried this recipe for Mothers Day. I doubled up on the ingredients, but only used 450 mls of white wine, as my sister and her family were also joining us. The resulting dish tasted bland and had far too much liquid.
