Nice mid week meal. I halved the recipe and used a combination of carrots, parsnip and butternut squash. I added the breadcrumbs and parmesan 10min from the end. It took the total cooking time stated (even though I was cooking half the amount). I just made the whole recipe in a casserole dish.

I'm surprised there are so many positive comments on this recipe! There is clearly an error which has been pointed out before and not rectified. You do NOT stir in the cheese and breadcrumb topping obviously! You add it at the end by sprinkling on the top and allow it to brown back in the oven. My poor husband wanted to cook me a surprise dinner and got thoroughly confused ! I expect more from the BBC frankly.

Made this with stir fried Savoy cabbage and garlic bread for a veggie dinner night. Everyone loved it, even the alpha males! I did do an anti pasta starter that included meats to soften the blow. Dessert was brownie hot cherries and ice cream.

Made this for tea last night & it went down a treat with everyone! In fact, Dad declared it better than Sunday's roast dinner. It's just as good reheated for a quick lunch the next day (provided you have any left over!), as the flavours have had more time to develop. I halved the recipe (as there's only 3 of us) & added 1/2 tbsp paprika and the same of tomato puree. I also added 1 tsp of chopped rosemary & a 1/2 tbsp of rapeseed oil to the breadcrumbs to make the topping crunchier & sprinkled this & the cheese on after stirring half-way through.

Really tasty! I added the breadcrumb & cheese topping 30 minutes before the end of cooking time and turned out perfectly.

I was really dissagpointed by this dish. We had a meatless february and I have to say this is the only meal we were dissapointed by and will not be making again :(

I did adapt this quite a bit.. Added similar amounts of winter veg and didn't bother with the mushy bread topping! Made some dumplings instead.
