    Notes

    • Note 1 This usually comes in boxes of 250 grams. We need 2 x boxes. This is a standard size. 
    • Note 2 I use light cheese, cheddar is popular in USA. 
    • Note 3 You can use crushed or diced tomatoes. Go for the ones that have no added herbs as we are putting our own in there. 
    • Note 4 Dried spices area of the supermarket. So simple, great flavour and saves time and tears.
