This was tasty enough, but just not for us. It was such a strong flavoured sauce, there could have been anything beneath it. The brocolli was a bit lost. Another complaint was our sundried tomatoes re-hydrated themselves completely in the broth, so it was full of skins, I like a bit of chew in mine. Maybe it would be better just to scatter them over at the end.
