A popular family favourite, baked with a tomato sauce filling.
These meatballs go hand-in-hand with freshly cooked spaghetti. Homemade beef meatballs are simmered in a rich and delicious tomato sauce. Serve with grated Parmesan, if desired.
This chilli con carne recipe is great served with rice or over jacket potatoes, accompanied by crusty bread, guacamole, soured cream, lime wedges and a big green salad. This recipe is best enjoyed a day or two after it is cooked as the flavours develop and the texture becomes richer. You can leave it in the fridge after cooling and then heat before serving. The recipe can also be frozen.
Economical and tasty. Warming hotpot made with lean beef mince, red cabbage, potato slices and beef stock. Cook gently and serve with crusty bread to mop up the flavoursome juices.
This is a variation of the ever-popular spaghetti bolognese and is sure to become just as well-loved. The little meatballs have aubergine added for a modern twist, and the sauce contains all the essential flavours of a classic Italian dish. Both can be made ahead, then simply reheated when you are ready to cook the pasta.
A lovely combination of mince, macaroni and a luscious cheese sauce, this is pure comfort food! It's tasty and cheap to make too!
My favourite aunt introduced me to this deliciously rich and fragrant dish. In the past few years I've made some changes and this is the recipe my family likes best. It's a great chilli con carne alternative and it freezes well. Try it on a jacket potato!
Once you make this Italian pasta dish, it will become a firm favourite. Spaghetti is topped with homemade meatballs in a tomato sauce. Enjoy with a liberal sprinkling of Parmesan, if desired.
This is truly an amazing chilli con carne. The recipe gets its trademark by the addition of coffee and dark beer. Don't be afraid to try this! Freeze in batches with great success.
This is one of my favourite recipes, easy to make and delicious, a simple meatball in a tomato and beef stock sauce.
