“I love hearty, robust and flavoursome dishes in winter. And this is one of them! Even better is how easy it is to prepare. The degree of spiciness will depend on the pasta sauce you use. Serve with potatoes, baked or mashed, or even some polenta. From Delicious magazine. Australian measurements used.”
