I love this recipe! I used green chilli jam and the flavours and textures of this dish are unbelievably delicious. I’d eat this every day. Thanks Donna!

Absoloutly yummy, my husband was not keen on trying this but raved about it since having it.

Easy and very tasty. Will definitely make again.

I made this for dinner tonight and my 17 year old son said it was “bloody wicked”.  I added halved cherry tomato’s & pomegranate seeds (apparently called Arils).  Absolutely delicious!

Donna’s recipe collection is so great for time pressed cooks.  This meal is no exception, super flavours and textures, it will make regular visits to our table, yummy.  First tried on holiday in Adelaide from NZ.

Sensational. Looked a HUGE meal on the plate, but we all devoured it. Such a healthy, fresh alternative to the normal cheese laden nachos. Definately will cook again!
