    I cooked this yesterday and it was absolutely gorgeous! I'm tryin the 5 dinners for under €24. The sauce in this meal was delicious and the main ingredient was a tin of tomatoes that cost 49c! I didn't have oregano but used mixed herbs instead. I added a load of black pepper and a little chilli and it was perfect. If I was served this meal in an Italian restaurant I'd be delighted with it, sausages and all!. So far so good....
