This saucy creation uses a creamy tomato sauce to coat the pasta, with chunks of tender beef mince and flavoursome Parmesan. Add greens that gently wilt when tossed with the pasta, and you’ve got a new recipe that's sure to please everyone in hardly any time at all.
Keep an eye out... Due to recent sourcing challenges, we’ve replaced fettuccine with penne, which may be a little different to what’s pictured. Don’t worry, your recipe will be just as delicious!

• Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Finely chop celery and garlic. Thinly slice carrot into half-moons. Thinly slice brown onion. • Cook penne in boiling water until 'al dente', 10 minutes. • Reserve some pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1/4 cup for 4 people), then drain and return to saucepan.
TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.
• Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. • When oil is hot, cook beef mince, breaking up with a spoon, until just browned, 1-2 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium, then add celery, carrot and onion and cook until tender, 5-6 minutes. • Add garlic, tomato paste and garlic & herb seasoning and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
• Add longlife cream (see ingredients), some reserved pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people) and beef-style stock powder and cook, stirring, until warmed through, 1 minute. • Remove pan from heat, then add cooked penne, baby spinach leaves and grated Parmesan cheese (reserve a pinch for garnish!). Toss to coat, then season to taste.
TIP: Add a splash more water to the sauce if it's looking dry!
• Roughly chop parsley leaves. • Divide creamy beef penne between bowls. • Sprinkle with parsley and reserved Parmesan cheese to serve.
