Went down with family ok generally but was alot of sauce-04 Mar 2012
Something else.I used fresh mince, left out the ginger, added two very finely chopped carrots (adds a sweet nuttiness) to the sauteed mince, onions and garlic as well as dried oregano, a glass of good red wine (gives the dish more depth), a big bayleaf and half a teaspoon of dried chilli powder. In the cream sauce, I left out the eggs and added more milk, a pinch of smoked paprika, nutmeg and powdered clove (subtle hints) and used both cheddar and good parmesan. Instaed of breadcrumbs = I finished with the macaroni level, added a topping of cheese and then very finely sliced tomatoes dusted with lots of pepper and seasalt. It crisps up and adds a piquant quality to the topping - also looks pretty!-14 Sep 2010(Review from this site AU | NZ)
Something else.I held back a little of the meat sauce and put that on top before baking. I just think it looks better that way. I also leave out the breadcrumbs, and increase the amount of cheese on top.-29 Jul 2010(Review from this site AU | NZ)
