    6. Dissolve the tomato paste in three glasses of water then pour over the oven dish. Drizzle with oil. Cook in the oven until the sauce starts boiling then bring the oven down to 180 degrees C. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

    Thanks!  -  29 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Used different ingredients. I used lean hamburger/mince instead of the soya mince and didn't include potatoes. It turned out delicious! Thanks for the recipe.  -  28 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
