Easy and quick to make. Sometimes hard to find Savoury Sauce in Countdown.

My family love a variation on this. I brown the mince & rice balls & saute onion. Put into casserole with 1tblsp chicken stock & squirt worchestershire sauce, season & add tin Watties tomatoe soup, & equal quantity of water, give a mix around and bake 45 minutes or so at moderate heat

Have adapted this recipe by using Watties tomatoes in sweet chilli sauce as a sauce base - adults really enjoy this spicier dish.
