This is so simple - and utterly, utterly delicious. I'm just sorry that I had to share the whole pan with the rest of the family as I genuinely think I could have eaten the entire meal in one sitting! Can't recommend enough and will be making this as often as the rest of the family will allow. Add some green veggies on the side and away you go.

This is such a cheap and easy meal. I was surprised at how tasty it was! Definitely a great weeknight dish when you're short of time but still want something hearty.

Fab easy recipe! I made a few tweeks (added mushrooms and more chilli powder, used penne pasta) and reduced the sauce from the tomatos right down so its a sticky sauce smothering all the lovely pasta! Id suggest adding salt and pepper during the cooking too as can taste like its missing something ... Very impressed overall!

Had no idea what to cook tonight and found this recipe. It was perfect, quick and easy to make, tasted great and most importantly met with approval from my teenage son. Will definitely make this one again.

Was expecting to find this a bit dull but had sausages to use up and needed something that would please whole family. It was delicious! My tweaks - added some Parma ham (needed using up), at the end is stirred in some cream cheese, then served up the kids portions, before adding some spinach and a bit of chilli powder to ours. Really lovely and everyone wants it again next week :)

I made this a while ago now, but was very nice. Was worried chilli powder would taste too spicy, but it gives a lovely kick. So easy and made the exact right amount. No leftovers, so must mean everyone else thought it was delicious too!
