Method

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat a little of the olive oil. Add the lamb mince, season and cook until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Drain off and discard any excess fat.
  2. Add the remaining oil, the fennel, garlic, rosemary and some seasoning, then cook for about 8 mins until soft and golden. Pour in the tomatoes, break up with the spoon, then add the olives. Simmer for about 15 mins until thickened.
  3. While the sauce is cooking, cook the spaghetti following pack instructions. Serve with grated Parmesan and a green salad, if you like.

I followed it to the letter and, like others, found it lacking, so I added toasted fennel seeds, a lamb stock cube (no extra water though) and a splash of Worcester sauce and it was delicious.

Tweaked this a little. I used beef mince and onions instead of the fennel. Also added a squirt of tomato purée with the tinned tomatoes and a beef stock cube which enriched the sauce. Was very well received.

Made this last week and we thought this dish had something missing and will make again but maybe with pork mince and add some fennel seeds !
