Easy & filling supper for hungry students



  • Serves 4
  • 500g beef mince
  • 1 large onion - sliced
  • Large jar of ready made pasta sauce
  • 250g frozen mixed veg
  • Frozen chips/potato wedges
  • Salt & pepper
  • Sunflower/vegetable oil
  • Dash Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce (optional)


1. Gently fry the onion in the oil until softened and transparent.

2. Add the beef mince and brown off, breaking up any lumps.

3. Add a little salt and pepper.

4. Pour in the pasta sauce and stir thoroughly.

5. Add the frozen veg and stir.

6. Simmer for 20 minutes.

7. Pour everything into a casserole dish.

8. Cover the mince/veg mixture with straight/crinkle chips or potato wedges.
