nice recipe although i don't like tomato but my boyfriend does so added a touch of paprika and reduced it down more

This has become a firm staple in my house. I use 2 tins of chopped tomatoes and tend to add some cornflour to thicken up the sauce if it hasn't reduced enough. I also chuck in other vegetables that I have in the fridge so have tried this with carrots, green beans, sugarsnap peas etc. All good; a great recipe.

Very easy to cook and tasty, added half a courgette and a beef stock cube to add extra flavour.

I agree with littlelouise I also let the sauce reduce for a while because the sauce was quite thin. great recipe though

easy healthy and tasty recipe - I had quite a lot of thin sauce so it may be worth adding a little flour just to thicken it a little.
