    Amazing. Due to lack of ingredients in house - I used 800G chopped tomatoes (replacing 400G tinned tomatoes, 250G passata sauce & 30G tomato paste) and used 100G of water, cooked for 25-30 minutes, varoma, reverse speed 2.5 - worked wonderfully.

    Great easy recipe. Even my husband that dioesn't like olives enjoys this one.

    Excellent. Used a whole onion and 3 rashers bacon in first step and added a chilli At second step. Used 2 tomatoes instead of passata with only 50 ml water. Even super fussy hubby loved it!

    Loved it. Full rich flavour. I used onion instead of the onion powder too.

    Simple, delicious flavours. Thanks for a(nother) delicious recipe, Nik. I used onion instead of powder and fresh tomatoes instead of tinned + passata. I also added a handful of my dehydrated tomatoes. Perfect.

    Yummy recipe....I added half a red chilli and half an onion with the garlic instead of the onion powder and chili flakes. Like Bluesky327, I also steamed some chicken while the sauce was cooking, then I put it all together in the thermoserver while I cooked some brown rice and steamed veges in the varoma while that was cooking....DELICIOUS!!
