Love love love this dish! The flavours work perfectly and it's so tasty as well as being really easy and quick to prepare, perfect for making after work. It makes plenty as is really easy to bulk out to serve more people. i always add some extra tomatoes as i like being a bit more saucy! Goes perfect with some garlic bread.
