It was a miserable, wet, weekday evening last night, just the sort of evening for hunkering down with some warming comfort food.
Usually if we are having a casserole I will slow cook it the evening before just leaving it to be reheated the next day but as I didn't decide we were having it until we were driving home it had to be a quick casserole made last night. It only took a half hour to prepare and cook and it was just the ticket. I love a good stew or casserole.
To add a little extra to this meal I chucked a dollop of soft cheese into the mashed potato which lifted this staple winter stodge from the mundane into something little bit different.
