This was ok but actually came out quite bland. Not sure what we did wrong? Wouldn't make again. Though my toddler enjoyed it mixed with rice and blended!

'Delightfully simple yet yummy', the quote from my satisfied husband. Used beef mince, just 200g, and extra veggies for healthiness.

Really tasty recipe. I made this with lamb mince and left out the celery. Halved the quantities as was cooking for one. But ended up eating it all so ate for two! Will definitely make again.

Tasty and so easy. I used beef instead of lamb and it was hearty at the time and I went to bed feeling full but was hungry in the morning so didn't feel like I'd had a massive dinner the night before. Very good.

I used beef mince instead of lamb. My wife thought it was very tasty and so did I. Next time I'll be trying it with pasta. Thumbs up to this one.

Use beef mince instead of lamb, spoon onto a slice of toast and top with a fried or poached egg. My partner pulled his nose up the first time I served this but absolutely loved it

I made this with turkey mince, chicken stock and extra tomato paste and it turned out YUM!
