Find the recipe on

2tbsp olive oil
65g pancetta cubes
300g Cooks Ingredients Classic Vegetable Base Mix
1 plump garlic clove, finely chopped
250g lean pork mince
250g lean steak mince or beef mince
100ml red or white wine
1tbsp plain flour
200ml chicken stock
227g Cooks Ingredients Diced Tomato
2tbsp tomato purée
2tbsp chopped oregano
900g new potatoes
2tbsp olive oil
3tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
50g Parmesan cheese, grated

Heat 1 tbsp of the oil for the meat sauce in a large, wide saucepan and fry the pancetta until just starting to brown, then stir in the Vegetable base mix and garlic with the remaining oil and fry, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes until the onion is softened and starting to colour. Tip in the pork and beef minces and stir to break them up with a wooden spoon, then stir fry until it is no longer raw looking.
Pour in the wine and let it bubble for 1-2 minutes to reduce slightly. Scatter in the flour, give a good stir, then pour in the stock and stir in the tomatoes and tomato purée. Cover and simmer gently on a very low heat, partly covered with a lid, for about 40-45 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened and saucy. Stir in the oregano and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, prepare the potato topping. Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and tip them back into the pan. Using a fork, break up the potatoes to lightly crush them, then stir in the oil, parsley and two thirds of the Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°, fan 170°. When the meat sauce is done and cooked through, season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon it into a 1.8-2 litre ovenproof dish and top with the crushed potatoes. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese. (Pie can be chilled now for up to a day ahead.) Place the dish on a baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until piping hot and the topping is golden and crisp. (Or if made ahead and chilled overnight, bake as above allowing 40-45 minutes.)
