To Make Parcels

1

Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a very high heat.

2

When the pan is piping hot, add the mince and break it up quickly with a wooden spoon.

Stir it for a few minutes until brown all over. Transfer to a bowl, cool slightly then drain off and discard any fat.

4

Wipe out the mince pan and turn the heat down to medium.

5

Add another tablespoon of oil, the onion and garlic. Stir for 5 minutes until soft and translucent.

6

Add the tomato paste, tinned tomatoes, stock and sugar. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until it becomes a pasta sauce consistency.

7

Season to taste. Add the cherry tomatoes (if using) and simmer for another few minutes.
