This recipe is out of a Super Food Ideas magazine, which they sell at the supermarket here in Oz. I have modified the recipe to suit my family and it is quick and easy but tastes great.

This is just excellent. I used stewed tomatoes because I was out of diced (how does that happen, do those cans just wander off somewhere or what?)and we all just loved it. This is my favorite type of recipe it is fast, cheap, and easy! I am adding it to my recipe rotation.
