Handy Hint

<p>This is a great base to add all sorts of other ingredients to. I often add tuna fish near the end of the cooking time or even some cooked sausages. <br />You can turn it into a bake by transfering to an oven dish, topping with cheese (cheddar, mozzerella etc) and putting in the oven for 10 mins. <br />Can also be used as a great base for making pizzas. I have often hidden vegetables such as courgette and broccoli (adding at the beginning of cooking) and then blitzing in the food processer.</p>
