This Tuscan-inspired casserole is enjoyable as is, or served under a rich Parmesan pastry pie top. To make the pies, allow the beef mixture to cool well before putting it into a large pie dish or individual dishes. Particularly tasty on a winter’s night accompanied with your favourite red wine.

4

In a jug, mix together the tomato paste, flour, stock and wine to make a smooth mix.

Pour into the slow cooker and stir to mix all the ingredients evenly together and cover with the lid.

6

Cook on low for 6–8 hours or on high for 3–5 hours.

7

Serve with seasonal vegetables or make into pies using the rich Parmesan pastry (see following tab).
