  • 250 grams tomato passata
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 packet spaghetti, cook by packet directions
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated parmesan or what ever grated cheese you like.


  • Cook mince till all is cooked, about 10- 15 minutes. Add onion and garlic, cook 5 minutes.Add red wine and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add piquillo peppers, carrot, oregano, tomato passata and tin tomatoes. Bring to a boil and than turn down and simmer for 1 hour, or until tomatoes have softened and some of the liquid has evaporated.
