Ingredients

  • 700g potatoes
  • 400g lean lamb mince
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 660g jar tomato pasta sauce
  • 350g pot ready-made cheese sauce or white sauce
  • PLUS 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Boil the potatoes for 10-12 mins or until half-cooked. Drain.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Brown the mince in 2 batches, breaking up any lumps with the back of a wooden spoon. Tip all the mince back into the pan, add the cinnamon and fry for 1 min. Pour in the tomato sauce and simmer for 5 mins. Slice the potatoes as thinly as you can without breaking the slices.

  • STEP 3

    Layer the mince and potatoes in a 1.5-litre baking dish. Season each layer and finish with a layer of potatoes. Spread the cheese or white sauce on top and bake for 35 mins until golden and the potatoes are tender.

RECIPE TIPS

Add 400g can chopped tomatoes and 300ml vegetable stock and simmer for 25 mins, with a lid on for the first 10 mins.
