• Boil the kettle. Thinly slice white and light green parts of leek. Grate the carrot. • Half-fill a large saucepan with water, add a generous pinch of salt, then bring to the boil over high heat. Cook spaghetti, uncovered, until 'al dente', 10 minutes. • Reserve some pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people), then drain and return spaghetti to the saucepan.

TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.

• Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook pork mince, leek and carrot, breaking up mince with a spoon, until browned, 6-8 minutes. • Add garlic & herb seasoning and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add crushed & sieved tomatoes, reserved pasta water, chicken-style stock powder, the butter and brown sugar. • Simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 3-4 minutes.
