Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Slice lengthways into thin strips then chop widthways into small pieces. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).


Bring a saucepan of water to boil for the pasta. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the lamb mince and cook until golden brown all over, 4-5 mins, using a spoon to break it up as it cooks. Add the onion and carrot and cook until they beginning to soften, 4-5 mins. Add the garlic and tomato puree and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.


Add the chopped tomatoes with basil and cinnamon (add less if you're not a fan of it!) with the water (see ingredients for amount) and season with salt and pepper. Add a pinch of sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring regularly, until thick and tomatoey, 15-20 mins.


Meanwhile, add ½ tsp salt to the boiling water and add the rigatoni. Cook for 12 mins then drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with a little oil to prevent it from sticking together.


While everything cooks, roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all). Crumble the feta into small pieces.


Taste the lamb sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add a splash of water if you feel it needs it. Stir the drained pasta and half the parsley through the sauce then divide between plates. Top with the crumbled feta and remaining parsley. Enjoy!
