Step 1

Boil enough water in a medium pan to cover the pasta. Add the pasta with a sprinkle of salt, pepper and a spoon of mixed herbs. I like to boil my pasta in a lot of herbs as it adds to the flavour.

Step 2

The pasta will need to boil for 10 minutes or so, depending on preference. While it cooks, start to fry the mince in a little oil. Use a splash of water instead of oil if you have a good nonstick pan to cut down on the fat. Add a teaspoon of oregano, a sprinkle of black pepper, the onion, pepper and chopped mushrooms to the pan and cook for 5-10 minutes.

Step 3

Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, you can use passata if you prefer, I like to use chopped tomatoes with garlic and herbs myself. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Drain the pasta and stir into the frying pan with the meat and sauce. Garnish with a generous sprinkle of chilli flakes.

If you prefer a spicier dish, add another spoonful of chilli flakes to the meat while it simmers.
