This recipe serves 2. I halved it and it was plenty for me. I served it with grilled mushrooms and asparagus on the side.

Hope you enjoy!

Amber, in north America we use liquid measure rather than weight. Canned tomatoes would be about 12 fluid ounces in the USA or or 350 ml in Canada.

Sounds delicious! For even more metric to imperial conversions ... 180C=350F. 160C=~325F... but what does the /gas 4 mean?

UK ovens are marked 1 - 9 with gas marks! Sorry! I should have edited the bbc's recipe!
