      this is quick and easy, but a bit bland for our taste. i also found that while the topping cooked up well the inside was a bit watery, we prefer our sauce a bit thicker.

      This is a fantastic base dish. I added 3 tsp of cornflour because of the last reviewer, as well as 4 carrots, 100g mushrooms, 1 green pepper, 1 tsp cayenne pepper. Very nice. I used sour cream instead of full cream - it was ok, but I don't recommend it :-) I'm not going to add stars because I made so many additions but it was a great base dish. I think I'll add even more veggies next time - maybe sweet potato and broccoli. If I wasn't weight conscious right now I would quadruple the cheese - it was nice the way it was but would have been purely indulgent with extra cheese. After all that rambling - in conclusion, this is a great base recipe but in my opinion needs adjustments to whatever your taste is.
