This is a rustic Spanish, spicy, mince based baked penne pasta dish which is perfect for a no-frills family supper. It has come about through trial and error in an attempt to replicate a dish that I ate in a Spanish farmhouse some 15 years ago. In our family it is simply called THE Pasta Dish. The sauce makes 5 portions and so it becomes economical and quick after you've cooked the batch of sauce.

Really delicious. Wanted something different to cook with mince and pasta. Will definitely make this again. Only used minced beef though as had no minced lamb. Used dried chillies. - 15 Jun 2012
