Yummy, I am a vegetarian and this recipe sounds right up my street. It will so versatile as well. Main meal or lunch time this will be great with a green salad on the side.
My partner can also take some in a pot to work with him. It will a lot healthier and tastier than buying one of those pasta snack pots from the shops. a lot cheaper too.
