– 5 cups of grated tasty cheese
– 1 teaspoon oregano
– 1 teaspoon mint
– 1 teaspoon basil
– 2 tablespoons of gluten free soy sauce
– 1 can of 410g tomato puree
– 1 cup of water
-250g spiral gluten free pasta (I used one packet of San Remo’s spirals)

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (if you are planning on eating it today).
2. In a frying pan heat 1 tablespoon of oil over a medium- high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook until browned.

3. Add the mince to the onion and garlic and continuously stir until brown. Add the oregano, mint, basil and soy sauce and stir.
4. Meanwhile, boil the corn, peas and beans in one saucepan and in another boil your gluten free pasta. Ensure you stir the pasta when you first place it into the boiled water and you might like to add a drop of oil so that the pasta doesn’t stick together. The pasta should take approximately 10 minutes to cook.
5. When the corn, peas and beans are cooked, drain and add to the mince.

8. Add the cooked pasta to the mince sauce.
9. Use an ovenproof square or rectangular dish. Transfer half the pasta into the dish. Sprinkle 1/3 of the grated cheese on top. Then transfer the remainder of the pasta on top. Sprinkle the remainder of the cheese (2/3) on top covering the entire pasta.
