• 500 g lean beef mince
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 420 g can Wattie's Traditonal Tomato and Mushroom Pasta Sauce
  • 1 ½ cans water, beef stock or red wine
  • 2 cups small pasta spirals
  • 2 cups Wattie's frozen Mixed Vegetables
  • salt and pepper to season
  • chopped parsley (optional)

1. Heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan and quickly brown minced beef and onion over a moderately high heat, breaking up the mince with the back of the spoon as it browns. This may be best done in two batches.

2. Add the garlic, Wattie’s Traditional Tomato and Mushroom Pasta Sauce, water or stock or wine and pasta and stir until the mixture comes to the boil. Cover, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes until the mince and pasta are tender.

3. Stir in the Wattie’s frozen Mixed Vegetables and simmer gently for only 3-5 minutes until the vegetables are hot. Season with salt and pepper and add a handful of chopped parsley if wished.

Fantastic! Made it for the family tonight, but had the garlic pasta sauce instead of tomato and mushroom, and had fresh chopped carrots and frozen peas instead of mixed frozen veg. Either way, great dinner idea, works out quite cheap, and goes a long way!

Delicious! Made this last night but tweaked a few things, I left out mixed vegetables and instead used canned kidney beans, canned corn and some capsicum :) Was absolutely delicious and no big mess to clean up afterwards!
