Quick, lazy meal to make. If you have frozen mince pop it in fridge the night before so you are good to go - we often add grated veges to the mince mix like carrot and courgette to up the vege content. Much quicker than going out for take-aways and it feels flash for my 2 kids as they can make it mostly themselves(ages 4 and 7)
