This is quinessentially student fodder which was borne out of having little money and only the basics in my cupboard, any left overs can be frozen and defrosted in a microwave when you need it fast! While I might have shrugged off the messy digs, late nights and early lectures I have kept this recipe which has now evolved into a meal in its own right.
Perfect for cold winter nights in and spicy enough to warm your cockles! Not only that if you use veg friendly sausages and use veg friendly stock it's actually a vegan meal fit for all without tasting like any one's missing out!!!
