Creamy Beef Penne

with Grated Parmesan

Read more

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 onion. Roughly chop silverbeet. • Cook penne in the boiling water until 'al dente', 10 minutes. Reserve some pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people), then drain and return to the saucepan.

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


• In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. 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. • Stir through silverbeet until wilted, 1-2 minutes. • Remove pan from the heat, then add cooked penne and grated Parmesan cheese (reserve a pinch for garnish!) and toss to coat. Season to taste.

TIP: Add a splash more water to the sauce if it's looking dry!


• Roughly chop herb leaves. • Divide creamy beef penne between bowls. • Sprinkle with herbs and reserved Parmesan cheese to serve.
