    It's got potatoes in it so i'm not serving it with mash, thank you very much.

    It is delicious but does take about an hour longer in the oven then stated, worth it though.

    Always a winner! Very easy to make and very low fat too (only 3 weight watchers points)I can whip it up in 20 mins - including all the veg chopping time.
