A very typical English dish, my Brit friends here make variations of it all the time, it's a staple quick supper.

This was fast, economical,and easy to fix - and tasted quite good on a cold fall day for lunch. My young daughter took two helpings and declared it as "wonderful!" Anything that gets that kind of reaction out of my sometimes picky eater gets a 5 stars from me!
