Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan and dry-fry the turkey mince until browned. Tip onto a plate and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Add the oil and gently cook the onion, carrot and celery until softened, about 10 mins (add a splash of water if it starts to stick). Add the mushrooms and cook for a few mins, then add the sugar and tomato purée, and cook for 1 min more, stirring to stop it from sticking.

  • STEP 3

    Add the tomatoes, turkey and stock with some seasoning. Simmer for at least 20 mins (or longer) until thickened. Serve with the pasta and fresh basil, if you have it.
