“This is a really great winter warmer recipe casserole. I love serving this with mashed potatoes and it tastes even better the next day. Also, there are many variations you can make to this recipe. You may wish to add some chilli or thyme or carroway seeds. This comes from Stephanie Alexander's The Cook's Companion.”
