“This is one of those meals I fix when I haven't got much time. It uses ingredients I usually always have at hand. My BF loves it. Serve with pasta, rice or potatoes or just some crusty bread to mop up the sauce. This is enough for two people, but can easily be doubled. Or if you want some greens, just add frozen peas or some steamed broccoli florets for the last few minutes.”
