Pesto Style Tomatoes

Ripened on the vine under the Hawke's Bay sun, Wattie's Pesto Tomatoes are blended with onions and basil, garlic, Parmesan, olive oil, and pinenuts.

Method
Step 1
1. Quickly brown the beef mince in a hot frying pan, breaking up the mince with the back of a spoon as it browns. This is best done in two batches. Set aside.
Step 2
2. Add oil to the frying pan, gently cook onion, garlic, green pepper and bacon until tender, but not brown. Stir in Wattie's Condensed Tomato Soup and Wattie's Pesto Style Tomatoes with 1/2 cup water. Return the browned mince to the sauce, mix well, cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes.
Step 3
3. Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water for about 10 minutes or until just tender. Drain well.
Step 4
4. Season the Bolognese sauce and stir through the basil. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese if wished.
