250 gram blog of Kraft Cheese cut into small cubes.

2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan (optional)

1 teaspoon or Stevia (or sugar of you choice)

Salt and pepper to taste.

 

Method

Add the tin tomato and tomato soup to a large saucepan and bring to the boil.

Make sure you stir it so it doesn't stick t the bottom on the pan.

Turn the heat down to a simmer and add half of the kraft cheese and the Stevia and stir well.

Let simmer until most of the cheese has melted.

Add in the rest of the cheese and cook for  further 10 - 15 minutes until the cheese starts to melt, you want there to me some  bigger bits of melted cheese left in the sauce.

Add in the cooked spaghetti and stir through until all the pasta is well coated.

Serve in bowls and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.

This also freezes really well.

If you don't want to add sugar you will need to simmer the tomato's longer before adding the cheese to get rid of some of the tartness. Make sure you stir as it can stick to the bottom of the pan.

2 tablespoon of tomato sauce

1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce

1 packet of short-crust or puff pastry (whichever you prefer)

Sesame seeds (optional)

2 tablespoons parsley optional.

Salt and Pepper to taste

In a large mixing bowl add the beef mince, the cooked onion, garlic, tomato sauce, dried herbs, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, stuffing mix and 2 eggs.  Mix all of these ingredients well together.

Whisk the remaining egg in a little bowl.

On a dry flat surface throw some flour down and lay your pastry sheets out.

Place the mixture on the pastry, then push the cheese sticks into the mince mixture.  Place the bacon strip over the mince mixture. Close the pastry over the mince and brush with the whisked egg.  Scatter some sesame seeds or dried herbs ontop (if desired).
