I make this recipe a lot. So much so that our boys remark “again?” when they ask what’s for dinner? But it’s easy and always hits the spot even if they’ve had it only last week. It’s a share and talk round the table meal, it’s a sitting in front of the TV meal, it’s a camping phenomenon and it’s a late night beach hut feast. It’s our House Special (… well one of them).
It freezes really well too and when my family sit down together to eat it then I know we are going to talk and giggle and share our day – good or bad but still giggles will feature.
What’s your family everyday meal? You know, the one that “just-works” no frills no spills?
This will serve you well as a quick family meal with enough vegetables in it to make you feel you’ve covered all the bases. Tasty and easy.
