Very good, thanks. I used dried red chillies and some tinned toms with uncooked ones. I think it best not to cook it for too long. Goes well with Blossom Hill Chardonnay and fresh French loaf with butter.

simple quick dinner - maybe best use one chilli instead of two if you aren't a big fan of spicey food
