To Make Parcels
Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a very high heat.
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.
Wipe out the mince pan and turn the heat down to medium.
Add another tablespoon of oil, the onion and garlic. Stir for 5 minutes until soft and translucent.
Add the tomato paste, tinned tomatoes, stock and sugar. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until it becomes a pasta sauce consistency.
Season to taste. Add the cherry tomatoes (if using) and simmer for another few minutes.
