I LIKE THIS RECIPE BECAUSE ... I love a casserole as it is so easy to put together, meaning I can get on with other things whilst it cooks. There is preety much everything you need in one pot so you will not needany other sides. The addition of Chinese Five Spice adds a fragrant twist to this meal.
