    1. Chop 2 onions and place in pan with tomato puree, chilli flakes, tomatoes & seasoning to taste. Add beef stock, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 10 mins.

    2. Chop the remaining onion, crush the garlic & beat the egg. Add to bowl with minced beef & parsley. Season & mix well together.

    100g boiled pasta is not a lot, so I use syns to have extra spaghetti! Really tasty, filling. Careful with the chilli flakes!!
