Tonight was one of my new meals to try. I did a little tweaking from the original recipe found here.

This was extremely flavoursome given how few ingredients are actually in the dish. This tasted delicious cold the next day and would make a great pasta salad.

    Thanks Peta for another dinner winner. I made this for my kids tonight and they wolfed it down. They said ” that was actually nice”! (Obviously most of my dinners aren’t!!). I left out the spring onions and added broccoli with a couple of minutes of cooking time to go just to add more veges as my son has low iron. This was so quick and easy and we’ll definitely be having it again. Thank you.
