1 clove of garlic
500g minced (ground) beef
500g dried pasta
200g other diced/sliced mixed veg of your choice (Peas, sweetcorn, carrots are a good choice - but whatever you have)
1 litre of meat or vegetable stock (us a stock cube or stock/bouillon pwder if you wish)
salt and pepper
Your favourite herbs and spices
Bring the stock to the boil in a large saucepan
Chop the onion and garlic and fry for 2 minutes in a small amount of oil in a separate frying pan. If you want to use less oil, add a splash of water too.
Add the pasta to the boiling water. Turn down the heat, put on a lid and simmer until the pasta is almost cooked
Meanwhile, add the beef to the frying pan with the seasoning and stir fry for a few minutes to brown it
Keep your eye on that pasta - the water will get low, so keep giving it a stir to prevent it sticking.
Mix the meat mixture to the pasta and veg (there should still be a little water in there) and stir over a low heat for a few more minutes. Don't let it get too dry
Any left over pasta mix can be eaten cold for lunch
