 200 g Dried PastaAny kind - I usually choose Fusilli or Penne
 500 g Lean MinceAny kind, preferably 5% fat or less - I used Pork Mince
 1 OnionDiced
 1 Bell PepperDiced
 2 Garlic ClovesChopped or Minced
 200 g Mushrooms
 600 g Chopped TomatoesAbout 1 can and a half
 400 ml Beef Stock (or Vegetable Stock/Boiling Water)Made up with stock cubes or stock pot
 1 tbsp Tomato Purée
 1 tbsp Oregano (Optional)
 1 tbsp Basil (Optional)
 100 g Cheese (Optional)Grated

1

Turn the Ninja Foodi on, select the Sear/Saute function on HIGH and let it warm up for a minute. Add the bell pepper and onion to the pot and fry gently for about 2 minutes.

2

Now add the minced meat. Keep cooking and stirring until the meat is no longer pink. This takes around 3-4 minutes maximum.

3

Now add the garlic, mushrooms and tomato purée and stir through. You can add in some salt, pepper, oregano and basil to season now (if you wish). Cook for 1-2 minutes just to heat it through. Now turn off the Sear/Saute function.

4

Pour the can and a half of chopped tomatoes over the mix. DO NOT STIR (this is really important).

5

Layer the pasta over the chopped tomatoes evenly, again DO NOT STIR.

Gently pour over the 400ml of beef / vegetable stock. You can just use 400ml of boiling water at this point, if you prefer.

6

Finally, select the Pressure Cook function for 5 minutes on HIGH. Then Quick Release the pressure.

Stir and you're ready to serve! Alternatively, if you like a bit of melted cheese on top your pasta, see Step 7.

7

Sprinkle over the grated cheese and select the Grill function for around 3-4 minutes to melt the cheese. You can grill for longer, if you like it more crispy. Enjoy!
