I love this dish I make this one weekly but I add can condensed tomato soup with 2 cans crushed tomatoes… It’s a 10/10 … I have it with potato bake… It’s definitely my favorite

As per recipe except:
ā€¢ā€¢ā€¢ swapped 1 tin of tomatoes for tomato soup
ā€¢ā€¢ā€¢ halved the breadcrumbs
ā€¢ā€¢ā€¢ I licked my plate, & Iā€™m not sure that was in the recipe šŸ˜ but it was THAT tasty!!

Server with sweet potato šŸ  & baby peas!!
Budget friendly too šŸ™‚
