This is a lovely simple recipe that turned out really well for us. We made enough for two using a little less meat than the third recipe called for. That works for us as we don't eat much red meat but love lots of sauce. The method mentions tomato paste which doesn't show up in the list of ingredients. I used a couple of teaspoons for the third of a recipe we made. I would definately make this again thanks djmastermum.
