Method

Before You Begin

Prepare your ingredients & cooking utensils: Use a chopping board and lay all the ingredients out. Take out any “Pantry Items”. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil for use in Step 1.

Washing Instruction

Wash your hands and tomatoes and lemon well. Rinse your rocket thoroughly and drain on paper towel.

Mariella's Tip

When eating pasta dishes, make sure to add plenty of veg to increase the fibre and nutrient content of your meal.

Step 1 - Spaghetti

Cook your spaghetti in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 10-12 minutes until "al dente". Drain through a colander once done and set aside until later.

Step 2 - Salsa Fills

Place your lemon zest and juice in a large mixing bowl and add a few good glugs of olive oil. Add your diced avocado, red onions, tomatoes, and mix gently. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3 - Crispy Mince

Heat a large casserole pan over med-high heat. Once your pan is hot, fry your beef mince for 6-8 minutes until crisp. I find the best way to brown and crisp mince is, for the most part, to leave it alone. Start with a hot oiled pan, add your mince and let it brown, then flip the pieces over or move them around until they crisp sort of evenly, lastly you want to break the mince down with a wooden spoon. Transfer to a serving dish.

To Serve

Mix your pasta into your salsa fills and toss with your rocket. Divide your pasta amongst your servings and top with your crispy mince and grated grana padano cheese.
