Very good! I cut the oil to 1 T and added another clove of garlic and 1 t rosemary. Very comforting on a cold day! I will make this again! Thanks Evie*!
Absolutely delicious and savoury comfort food - didn't change a thing in the recipe and we loved it. Would give it six stars if I could! Thanks for posting Evie!
