Anything low fat and healthy is a winner in my family and this was sooooo good - and extremely versatile !! I used vegetarian sausages, fresh thyme and threw in a few sundried tomatoes and the result was fabulous and well received - extra water makes it a soup and less fluid makes it like a risotto .Made for ZWT3 and will definitely be made again so thanks to pattikay.
