What it takes

  • 300g extra lean minced beef
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 medium courgette, chopped
  • 150ml reduced salt stock

How to make it

  1. Heat a large saucepan and add the minced beef a handful at a time, heat, cooking it until browned. Add the onion and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, apart from the spaghetti. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes.
