Thoroughly enjoyed this meal – Thanks for sharing
I halved the recipe as it was only feeding the 2 of us and popped a teatowel under the lid for the last hour to help the sauce thicken up and that worked really well. I also only used 1 chopped medium chilli to suit our personal tastes.

This is so easy and delicious. It also freezes very well.
