I made this for dinner on tuesday night and it was absolutley delicious! Even the kids loved it. We're not vegeterians but I have just lost inspiration with cooking and fancied something different. We had it with baked potatoes. I also added mushrooms to it and it was fresh spinach I used. Highly recommended will def make it a weekly thing, so quick and easy to do!
