Used rosemary instead of thyme and it tasted great. I'll definitely add some lemon juice if I make it again. Served it with basmati and wild rice which went really nicely.

Did this with some river cobbler, really nice. Used crushed tomatoes from the garden rather than a tin, through a bit of broccoli in and served it with sautéed potatoes. Will be making it again.

Very tasty, added just a little garlic and some halved cherry tomatoes for some added bite. Served with roasted peppers stuffed with couscous and went down a treat. Best bit was I got to socialise rather than spend hours in the kitchen.

really enjoyed this recipe, the sauce was lovely. we used frozen fish but just cooked it in the oven for 15 minutes and slipped the pieces into the sauce for the last 5 or so minutes. Also made double the quantity of sauce, which was comfortably enough for three of us.

Think I'll try adding garlic to the base of the sauce plus some red wine and chilli... can't wait to try this!

Made this terrifically easy recipe with some inexpensive cod pieces, my picky husband absolutely loved it. A winner, so simple it hardly qualifies as a recipe!
