Cooking Steps

  • 1

    If you are cooking with meat, you’ll want to brown that mince up first. Heat a little oil in a pan, add the beef mince and cook until nice and brown. Then, drain the fat juices and put to one side aside. If you’re getting Quorn-y wait until step 5 to add the mince.

  • 2

    Heat oil in in a large pan, add the red pepper and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, cook on a mid-high heat until mushrooms are soft and peppers are slightly browned.

  • 3

    Add the grated carrot and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  • 4

    Add the tinned tomatoes, stock cube, paprika and Italian herbs and cook until simmering.

  • 5

    Add your browned beef mince, or your Quorn and simmer on a low-medium heat for 20 minutes.

  • 6

    Serve with your choice of pasta or spaghetti – voila!
