  1. This is delicious! I forgot to add potato, so will do that next time. Also I will use passata so the tomatoey broth is smooth. No biggy, just really reminding myself for when I make this again.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I added zucchini at the start and at 4 hour mark it was nowhere near cooked. So then I added a cup of small shell pasta, a good 3 tablespoons of worchestire sauce, an extra litre of stock , a little chilli and put on high for 2 hours. Turned out perfect
