Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 large aubergine (about 250g), cut into 1cm dice
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 250g lamb mince (we used 20% fat mince)
  • 2 tsp dried mint
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 50g sundried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 50g pitted olives, halved
  • 240g dried rigatoni
  • mint leaves (optional)

Step by step

  1. Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan and fry the onion and aubergine for 6-8 minutes, or until starting to soften. Add the garlic and continue to cook for a further minute.
  2. Add the lamb mince and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until browned all over, then add the mint and the chopped and sundried tomatoes. Bring to a simmer and leave on the hob to cook for 15 minutes, or until it has reduced down. Stir through the olives and season to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the pack instructions. Drain and toss together with the ragu. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, if you have them.
