Spaghetti with Chilli Scotch Beef and Beans

Spaghetti with Chilli Scotch Beef and Beans

serves 4-6


  • 500g lean Scotch Beef mince

  • 2 teaspoon medium chilli powder

  • 600g jar of tomato based pasta sauce

  • 410g can of red kidney beans, rinsed, and drained

  • 340g can corn kernels, drained

  • 1 green pepper, seeded and diced

  • 500g spaghetti

  • Olive oil spray

Cooking Method

  1. Spray a large saucepan with oil and heat. Add beef and chilli powder and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until browned, breaking up any lumps. Stir in pasta sauce, and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add beans and vegetables and cook a further 5 minutes. While sauce is simmering, cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water. Drain and serve with the sauce. Garnish with shredded parsley and spring onions, if desired.
  3. This sauce keeps in the fridge for up to two days – in fact the flavour improves if made ahead. It also freezes well for up to 2 months. Freeze in individual portions, labelled and dated.
