Cook Once, Eat Twice

This dish is a part of our Cook Once, Eat Twice Series! Where the focus is to cook a meal one night, and either have the same dish the next night or turn it into the other dish that it is linked to in the series! 

We know the extra stress that comes with having to cook and prepare dinner every night, so these meals are designed to limit some stress in the kitchen whilst helping you to eat great, tasty food! 

The leftovers from this recipe can be used to make Chicken & Bacon Cassoulet, click here for the recipe!
