Recipe by PinkCherryBlossom

This is from a great old TV programme called "food and drink" sadly it is no more but I have kept this recipe on a piece of paper for years although I know it by heart the cat has just shredded the original so it is now here where she can't get it ;)

Fantastic! This does have great flavor, I really enjoyed this and it was super fast and easy to make with things I already have on hand. I used low sodium canned tomatoes, and even skipped out of the salt all together - Still good. Parsley is right, cabbage or spinach would have been awesome in this. A keeper, thank you!
