Additional tips: You can add in all sorts of seasonal vegetables or other meats so muck about with it and find your own favourite combination or use up what’s in the fridge!

This is great served with baked or mashed potatoes or brown rice.

If you don’t have a metal pan that goes in the oven then you can simmer it on the hob with a lid on.

Use fresh tomatoes when in season.
