1 kg lean mince
2 onions finely chopped in food processor
2-3 tablespoons crushed garlic
2-3 tablespoons oil
840g tin tomato soup
1 tin water
500g pasta spirals or small penne pasta
2-3 teaspoons ground pepper
Method: Heat oil and fry onion and garlic until soft and golden. Add mince and brown well. Add remaining ingredients and fill tomato tin with water, adding to mince mixture. Mix well and bring to the boil. Stirring occasionally, reduce heat and simmer with the lid on until pasta is tender.
Variation: Substitute beef with 2 large tins of tuna for a different flavour.
Hint: Freezes well. This is an all-time favourite of both the children and adults at Child Care and was named by one of the children!
