Large Non-Stick Pan
Large Pan



• Boil the kettle. • In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook beef mince and diced bacon, breaking up with a spoon, until just browned, 5-6 minutes. • Add garlic & herb seasoning (see ingredients), garlic paste, tomato paste and baby spinach leaves and cook until wilted, 1-2 minutes. • Remove pan from heat, then stir through tomato sugo.

TIP: For best results, drain the oil from the pan after cooking the meat.


• Meanwhile, half-fill a large saucepan with boiling water. • Bring to the boil, then add spinach & ricotta tortellini and cook, over high heat, until ‘al dente’, 3 minutes. • Using a slotted spoon, transfer tortellini to the frying pan with the ragu, along with a dash of pasta water. • Toss to combine, then season to taste.


• Thinly slice cucumber into half-moons. • In a large bowl, combine cucumber, spinach & rocket mix and balsamic & olive oil dressing (see ingredients). • Toss and season to taste.


• Divide beef and bacon ragu with spinach-ricotta tortellini between bowls. • Garnish with torn parsley (see ingredients). Serve with cucumber salad. Enjoy!
