Really quick and easy, nice dish. Like mentioned previously the ‘broth’ tends to be soaked up, I threw a bit more water in just so there was a sauce of sorts, but it’s easily adaptable to taste. Will be making again.

I made this last night, and found it really quick and easy. It was very tasty as well, and my partner really enjoyed it! The only comment I would make would be regarding the broth. I ended up just putting in 200gms of dried egg noodles, but they absorbed all the broth, so the dish looked dry (although it was still very tasty and the noodles had lots of flavour), so it was a slightly different result that what I had expected. it actually worked out fine as my other half actually prefers his food 'dry', but its just a heads up for anyone planning to make it. I'd definitely make it again.
