After reading some of the comments I chose to go along with some of them and used chicken stock instead of vegetable stock. I added crushed garlic, some black olives and half a teaspoon of chilli powder as extra. I also chopped up some sausage into a frying pan and added at the end of cooking. It all made a very nice meal that we all enjoyed. Will be saving this recipe to make again. Ours looked nothing like the picture though.

Great lunch stand by for family. Used concentrated chicken stock and needs seasoning, but works for a quick tummy filler

This recipe is quite good , i have just done that and my man really love it. Thx for sharing this recipe^^ Anyway, I modified this recipe a little bit by - using fresh tomatoes and tomato puré - using chicken stock - adding chicken and green chillies in recipe

My family all loved this, everyone had 2nds. We added chopped courgette and bacon to ours, very tasty and so easy.

Found this whilst searching for a new idea for a quick lunch to use up mushrooms & red pepper lurking in the depths of the fridge. Didn't have any rosemary, but had (frozen) parsley. End result was lovely! Yes, it did need a fair amount of salt to lift the flavour. Re-reading the recipe afterwards, I found I'd forgotten the tinned tomatoes - and I had half a tin to use up anyway! - but still enjoyed. Next time I'll play around a bit, like the sound of paprika....

I made this recipe with mixed peppers rather than just red, to add colour to the dish, I also added a teaspoon of chipotle paste to give the dish a bit of a kick & add a smokey flavour, also this dish can be simmered on the hob in a large pan instead of using the oven, regards Nastonia

I agree with some of the other comments; the rice needed much longer in the oven than the recipe states. The flavour was okay (you need to season it properly though!) and the mushrooms were delicious but I'm marking it down as had cooked chicken to coincide with the rice being finished and had to leave the chicken getting cold while we waited for the rice to cook! Seriously, ours was in for 35 mins at the heat stated...

Had this for tea...pretty bland to be honest. A bit of salt to season at the end really lifted the dish and made it much more flavoursome. Still feels like there's something missing though?? Maybe a bit of heat in the dish would be nice; some chilli flakes perhaps.

I love making one pot meals. They are so easy to make yet you would think a lot more effort had gone into making the meal as it is so delicious. The smell as it came out of the oven was mouthwatering.

We have this a couple of times a week, I add some garlic, tomato purée and peri peri sauce. It's lovely cold for lunch at work the next day too
