My husband made this tonight with soyrizo, since we are vegetarians. Added mushrooms instead of beef and one zucchini. The kids and I are waiting and drooling standing over the is terrific

Found it easy to make and delicious to eat. Had to make it child-friendly so I swapped the red wine to Worcester Sauce. Fantastic recipe that scored me a win at home.

It was delicious! I found that 50-60 mins is enough time for the dish. I will also try spicy chorizo next time and add 50ml more of the wine. Its good to put fresh parsley on the top to decorate x
