Method

  1. Turn the hob to a medium heat and in a non-stick pan, chuck in the sliced onion, grated carrot and courgette with a pinch of salt and a little bit of water to stop it sticking to the pan. Fry for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the pork and beef and fry until browned, which should take about 5 minutes. Add the chopped garlic, tomato puree and red wine and cook for a further 3 minutes until the wine has cooked out.
  3. Throw in the chopped tomatoes, chopped red pepper, passata, oregano, and beef stock cube and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and when serving, sprinkle with the fresh chopped basil.

Serve with spaghetti, or if you want to reduce your carb intake, mix it up with some courgetti. If you’ve got calories to spare, top with grated Parmesan or mozzarella.
