Ingredients

  • 400g lean minced beef
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp dried mixed Italian herbs
  • 690ml jar passata with onions and garlic
  • 350g penne
  • 200ml tub half-fat crème fraîche
  • 25g parmesan, grated
  • garlic bread and salad, to serve

Method

  1. Heat grill to high. In a large, non-stick frying pan, fry the mince until browned. Add the garlic, sugar and herbs, and cook for 1 min more. Pour over the passata, add seasoning, then simmer while you cook pasta, following the pack instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the crème fraîche and Parmesan. Spoon half the mince into an ovenproof dish. Mix the rest with the pasta and pour this on top. Drizzle over the Parmesan cream and grill until golden and bubbling. Serve with salad and garlic bread.
