    loved the flovour!  -  21 Oct 2014


    Had to thicken with tomato paste towards the end of cooking as the sauce was to thin. Over than that a lovely dish  -  03 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I was looking for a use for a leftover pork chop when I stumbled across this. I adjusted the amounts to one portion and my chop was already cooked so I just skipped stage 2. I also used the juice from tinned tomatoes as I didn't have any passata sauce. It was lovely - much nicer (not as heavy or greasy) as takeaway. I used arborio rice which worked really well with it. Will make it again.  -  31 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
