Carefully transfer the liquid from the casserole dish into a saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat, boil 5-8 minutes or until sauce has reduced and thickened .Pour the sauce back over the casserole, season and scatter with parsley.

Tip: A flameproof casserole dish means its suitable for both stovetop and use in the oven. If you don’t have one you can cook steps 1-3 in a frying pan then transfer to an ovenproof casserole dish
Tip: If your casserole dish doesn’t have a lid, press a piece of baking paper right onto the surface of the casserole then cover with two layers of foil.
