Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the carrot (unpeeled) and celery. TIP: Grate the carrot if you prefer! Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press).


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot and celery and cook, stirring, until softened, 5 minutes. Add the garlic and Italian herbs and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


Push the vegetables to the side of the pan and add the lamb mince to the empty space in the pan. Cook, breaking up the lamb with a spoon, until browned, 4 minutes. Add the tomato paste (see ingredients list), brown sugar, chopped tomatoes, water and crumbled beef stock (1 cube for 2 people / 2 cubes for 4 people). Stir to combine. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until thickened, 8-10 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.


While the ragu is simmering, add the spaghetti to the saucepan of boiling water and cook until ‘al dente’, 9 minutes. TIP: 'Al dente' means the pasta is cooked through but still has a bit of firmness in the middle. Drain and return the spaghetti to the saucepan.


Add the spaghetti to the lamb ragu and toss to coat. In a medium bowl, combine olive oil (2 tsp for 2 people / 4 tsp for 4 people) and balsamic vinegar. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and add the mixed salad leaves. Toss to coat. Roughly chop the parsley leaves.


Divide the Italian lamb ragu and spaghetti between bowls. Sprinkle over the parsley and shaved Parmesan cheese. Serve the salad on the side.
