This is absolutely gorgeous. I like a bit of spice and so added two chilli's to the onions when frying with some dried thyme. It gave the dish an extra kick. Served with boiled baby potatoes and broccoli . A new favourite.

This dish was awesome so simple but beautiful, I have cooked it 3-4 times but unfortunately I now find it too sweet for my taste buds! so have stopped!

This does exactly what it says on the tin! It is quick - easy and cheap. I really didn't want to spend long in the kitchen, so this was the perfect meal, and fairly healthy too. Served with new potatoes and peas. I added spices and chillies to the sauce (as I do with most things) but might try adding red wine next time too.

It was super easy, but super bland. Maybe with some chili and garlic it might be better.

Entered "cod, tomatoes" into your search box and this was top of the list. Very easy and quick to make and tasted delicious. An added bonus - very little washing up. Think this will become a regular in our house!

This dish was simply divine. Added chorizo and black olives as per another recommendation and served it with sweet potato mash, absolute hit! It'll be on the menu for a second time tonight.

I recently made this dish, it was delish, i added Paprika and Peppercorns, i also used frozen peas and sweetcorn and only 1 tin of chopped tomatoes. served with a fresh naan - oh and i cooked it with a full red chilli pierced then removed before serving !!! will be making again..

Absolutely delicious with a few changes which made the dish; added a teaspoon of smoked paprika, chilli flakes & crushed garlic to the softened onion. Used a tin of cherry tomatoes instead of chopped & added a tablespoon of tomato purée. A definite hit with the hubby, served with steamed new potatoes & green beans.

I found the dish a little bit bland - i think if i cook it again, I will add some hot paprika and maybe some other bits and pieces. It was just missing something.....
