This is lovely! Used potatoes, carrots, cauli, peas, green beans and tinned sweetcorn. D-e-e-e-lish! The only reason I've taken a star off is that I think it'll be pretty high fat/calorie with all that yummy cheese in the pastry. Totally unfair rating if we're going by taste, but I;m as fat as a whale, and trying to get some of this wibbly-wobbly off. Problem is, I just cannot resist...
