Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Very tasty easy to follow instructions. for a dish that will be made again. Very generous servings.. Because I cut the recipe in half when I checked after 25 minutes in the oven I found it needed a bit more liquid so I added 3/4 cup of tomato juice along with the peas & prawns. After 10 more minutes in the oven everything was cooked perfectly.Another lovely ImPat recipe.
