    This is my own recipe which is inspired by my nans recipe and she is italian. I have tweaked it for use on the extra easy plan on Slimming World which is 1/2 a sin.

    Serves 4

    (the sauce will spread easily to serve 5 just increase the pasta weight by an additional 100g)

    Ingredients -prepared

    400g Fusilli Pasta (or any pasta)
    500g Extra lean Beef Mince
    1 good size onion finely chopped
    2 Cloves garlic crushed
    10 mushrooms halved then sliced
    1 Large carrot finely diced
    1 Large stick of celery, halved lengthways then finely sliced
    1 Large courgette peeled then diced small
    1 tin chopped tomatoes
    4 level tbsp's of tomatoe puree.
    200 fl oz vegetable stock
    pepper
    Oregano
    Basil
    Marjoram
    Olive Oil Frylite (or small drizzle of olive oil if your not on a diet)

    Method

    Squirt the frylite into deep pan and add all the vegetables, seasoning - inc the garlic, and herbs into the pan, cook for a few mins, then add the vegetable stock and cook for approx 10 mins.

    Then add the mince and cook until the mince is brown, and then add the puree and chopped tomatoes.

    Cook on a medium heat for 30 mins. The longer you cook it the more tasty it tastes!

    Cookers tip: You can place all the ingredients in your slow cooker and cook it all afternoon! Yum yum!

    Cook the pasta in boiling water with a pinch of salt until tender.

    Layer a bowl with a portion of the pasta, and place an equal serving of the sauce on top of the pasta.

    Voila!

    I do the same sauce minus the oregano, marjoram, and basil. Then add chilli powder or fresh chilli (if you want to blow your head off) and a tin of kidney beans for a chilli con carne :)

    Still only 1/2 syn per serving (extra easy plan) nom nom :)

    Ever thought of adding chocolate to sauces?

    The dark chocolate is a lot less syns so can easily be syned.

    The Green & Blacks bars are 4 Syns for the 15g miniature or for the 28g bar 7.5 Syns so over 4 people that only adds an extra syn per serving for the smaller bar and 2 for the larger bar.

    But seem as tho you only need a square, that it would literally add a very small amount of syns per serving! Just pop a square into the chilli to add an extra 1/2 syn per serving!

    I will post a piccy later as I am doing chilli tonight
