    Absolutely beautiful - so easy and very tasty - last time I made it though I added chopped up chicken pieces and a touch of garlic - really nice either way  -  12 May 2012


    Excellant and tasty, even though I forgot to pre bake the pastry. Added quite a few different herbs and lots of ground black pepper.  -  15 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
