 This is one of my favourite recipes even when I'm not following slimming world. Not only is it very quick, easy and very tasty but it also costs very little per portion so great for those who are looking for great meals on a budget. It's also a great meal foe those who only have access to a microwave at work but don't want to succumb to eating packet meals.
