Add the tomatoes herbs and ketchup (add a splash of beef stock if a little too thick). Season and bring to the boil and then simmer for 10-15 minutes with the lid on the pan.

Preheat the grill.

Drain the potatoes; add a splash of milk and mash. Place the mince mixture into a shallow dish, top with a thin layer of mash and dot with a little margarine. Place under preheated grill until crisp and golden, about 5- 10 minutes.

"I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s such a winner! It’s so quick to throw together and so satisfying. I love using potatoes instead of noodles, it’s a really fun twist on the dish and a nice new way to use a simple ingredient. The flavours in this are so great too – the mix of sesame, ginger, chilli and coriander with spring onions, peppers, kale and mushrooms is just so delicious. Can’t wait to hear what you all think!"
