1 heaped tablespoon tomato paste
400g canned diced tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon sugar
1 heaped tablespoon tomato sauce
Sprinkle of basil leaves
Sprinkle of parsley

Meat and Pasta

500g Minced Beef

Heat oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat
Add the onion and the garlic and cook for about 4 minutes till soft, but do not brown
Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly for about a minute
Add the diced tomatoes and reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until thickened to your desired consistency

Curious about the parsley. Here, we would usually use Italian flat-leaf parsley in an Italian-style sauce. Cilantro (fresh coriander) has an entirely different flavor. Do you use them interchangeably?

Looks good, Kylie. I have the same question about the cilantro as GG. Otherwise, this sounds great!

When I am sauteeing onions and garlic, I like to add the onion first and let them sautee, if not necessarily brown. Because garlic cooks much faster than the onions, I find that the flavros develop better this way!

Sorry guys, I was trying to help out...but I thought cilantro was parsley, apparently it is coriander

Sorry guys...yes, just use the flat leaf parsley

Yes that is the way we do it too, we cook the meat, onions and garlic in a separate frypan whilst everything else is cooking

Then put it all in the sauce with the cooked pasta

Thanks Fi for moving this for me

Guys, I decided to do the whole Mince Pasta Recipe instead of just the sauce

It should all make much more sense now
