  • Boil a pot of salted water for the rigatoni.
  • When boiling, add the rigatoni and cook until softened, 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot.
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.
  • Meanwhile, halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 1cm chunks (or as small as you can get it). 
  • Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed then finely chop.
  • Place a pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • When hot, add the beef mince, bell pepper and chopped onion.
  • Cook until the beef is browned and veg is tender, 5-6 mins. Use a wooden spoon to break up the beef as it cooks. 
  • When cooked, add the garlic and Worcester sauce. Cook stirring frequently, 1 min. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once the garlic has cooked, add the passata, beef stock and 100ml water (double for 4p). 
  • Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Cook until thickened, 8-10 mins.
  • Once everything has cooked, pop the BBQ sauce into the pan and bring to the boil. 
  • Season the beef to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Pop the drained rigatoni into the pan with the beef
  • Mix well to combine and remove from the heat.
  • Share the BBQ beef pasta between your bowls.
  • Top with the grated cheese and a sprinkle of chopped chilli (use less if you don't like spice).
