The reason why I chose this dish and these ingredients as they are flexible in the way you can use the ingredients in different recipes if you were to purchase the ingredients in a weekly shop the recipe makes a large baking dish thus giving at least two nights of food for a family of 4-6 which when you break it down makes a very economical, filling and tasty dinner and left overs for lunch.
