• 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 2 x 400g cans Wattie's Crushed and Sieved Tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried Gregg's Rubbed Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Gregg's Rubbed Oregano
  • 300g dried spaghetti

  1. Heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan over low-medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring until the onion is soft. Increase the heat. Add the mince and brown, breaking up the mince with a fork if necessary.
  2. Add the Wattie's Crushed and Sieved Tomatoes, Gregg's Rubbed Rosemary and Gregg's Rubbed Oregano. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for 15–20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and the mince is cooked. Season to taste.

  4. Serve the sauce over the spaghetti and top with Parmesan. Serve with your favourite salad or vegetables.
