This was a recipe born of desperation at cooking stuff for my boys that was boring. They had toast so my wife & I had this!!!! This is designed as a 30-minute meal (apologies to Mr. Oliver!) so start by putting a good sized non-stick casserole with a lid on the stove and turn it on to full, as well fill up your kettle and boil it.
If you wanted to use this as a smuggling dish for the children you could chop the veggies in a food processor, you could also substitute the mince for a cheap cut of casserole meat and adjust cooking time accordingly
