Lovely recipe. For my taste the Cavalo Nero needs to be cooked a bit longer. But all delish.



This was very simple to make and I made it with sweet potato fries (just cut sweet pots into fries and mix in tiny bit of olive oil, salt and paprika OR soya sauce & cook gas 6 for 50 mins). Looked like restaurant meal. Really lovely recipe.

This was fast and simple to make - not sure that I could face the egg and chilli first thing in the morning, but for a speedy and nutritious lunch it was splendid!
