Add the stock, chopped tomatoes and bay leaves. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and cook on the hob or in the oven for 2½-3hours.

Garnish with parsley and serve with mashed potatoes and vegetables.

If you are a carnivore and are part of a large family, this dish sounds delicious.

If you are 'a won't cook, can't cook' - I know disgusting isn't it? - and a vegetarian, what do you suggest?

I do eat very well, thanks to Quorn, but cheap, quick recipes for one wouldn't come amiss.

Hanging head in shame!

It's not a one pot meal if you add mash potatoes and veg., one pot is everything in the one pot!
