  • 500g pack Extra Lean Ground British Beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 250g pack organic chestnut mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (optional)
  • 420g tomato and herb sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • red wine
  • 500g pack gnocchi (either fresh or long-life)
  • 75g grated mozzarella


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Place the ground beef, onion and garlic in a nonstick pan and fry gently for 5-6 minutes, stirring all the time, until the onion is starting to soften.
    2. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for a further 5-6 minutes until the meat is browned. Pour over the tomato and herb sauce, add a small amount of wine and bring to boil, season with salt and black pepper, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi in a pan of boiling water according to pack instructions. Drain well.
    4. To assemble the dish, spoon half the Bolognese mixture into a large shallow ovenproof dish, then top with the gnocchi. Add the remaining Bolognese sauce. Sprinkle with the mozzarella.
    5. Bake on the top shelf of the oven for 30-35 minutes, until golden. Serve immediately.
