Excellent. We tried this with a tomato and chilli sauce (commercial one) as had no chopped tomatoes. It was lovely! Will definitely cook it again. Foliot

Cooked this dish for my boyfriend. It's very tasty and healthy, and easy to make! Cooked brown rice to have on the side as well as broccoli and a fresh green salad.

Loved it! Fresh and light winter warmer, just added spinach to the sauce as an extra :)

Really enjoyed this. I made it with hake, and used oregano rather than thyme. Excellent sauce, and lovely with boiled potatoes.

Not great, would not bother again, Delia Smith does a much easier recipe that is similar to this, I will just stick to Delia's in future.

Used rosemary instead of thyme and it tasted great. I'll definitely add some lemon juice if I make it again. Served it with basmati and wild rice which went really nicely.

Did this with some river cobbler, really nice. Used crushed tomatoes from the garden rather than a tin, through a bit of broccoli in and served it with sautéed potatoes. Will be making it again.

Very tasty, added just a little garlic and some halved cherry tomatoes for some added bite. Served with roasted peppers stuffed with couscous and went down a treat. Best bit was I got to socialise rather than spend hours in the kitchen.
