A hearty winter meal on its own or a light tasty summer meal with salad. I've been making this for years and have forgotten where it came from, but I know that now it's got my own personal recipe additions of more of everything. It's become the favourite of my children and their friends...and their friends.

Very tasty. The kids loved it (very important). Simple to make, could possibly add stuff like zucchini, capsicum, sweet corn etc.
