This is my son's favourite. Great to freeze and transport back to uni to keep him alive until the next visit.

This wasn't bad. It was very easy to make, but not much in the way of flavour. I added chicken and cheese and found it quite nice. It's not something I would make for other people, but if I'm home alone and want something easy to make, I might make this again. Definitely not without the chicken and cheese though, without them I don't think it's nice at all. - 10 Oct 2010
