- Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine.
- When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil.
- Cook until softened, 12 mins.
- Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot (off the heat).
- Drizzle with oil and stir through to prevent sticking.
TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.
- Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
- Coarsely grate the carrot.
- Halve the tomatoes.
- Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
- Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- Once hot, add the onion, carrot and beef mince.
- Fry until the mince is browned, 6-8 mins.
- Season with salt and pepper. Use a spoon to break up the mince as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
- Once the mince is browned, add cherry tomatoes, chopped tomatoes, Worcester sauce, red wine jus and ½ tsp sugar (double for 4p) to the pan.
- Stir everything together and simmer until slightly reduced, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir through a knob of butter.
TIP: Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if you feel it's too thick!
- Stir the cooked pasta and half the parsley into the sauce.
- Sprinkle the cheese over the pasta.
