Put a large saucepan of water with a pinch of salt on to boil for the pasta. Heat a frying pan on high heat. Add the lamb mince (no oil!) and cook until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, 5 mins. Drain off any fat, then stir in the chopped tomatoes. Stir in the stock powder and water (see ingredients for amount). Bring to the boil, then simmer until thickened and reduced by half, 15 mins.

Meanwhile, pop the rigatoni in the pan of boiling water. Cook until 'al dente', around 12 mins. TIP: 'Al dente' simply means the pasta is cooked through but has a tiny bit of firmness left in the middle. When cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan off the heat. Drizzle with some oil to stop it sticking together.

While the pasta and lamb cook, mix the balsamic vinegar, honey and olive oil (see ingredients for amount) together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pop half the cheese in another bowl and add in the panko breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper and mix well, then set aside.

Preheat your grill to medium-high. When the lamb mixture has thickened, add the spinach and stir through until wilted, about 2 mins. Season to taste with salt and pepper if needed.

Mix the crème fraîche and remaining hard Italian cheese into the pasta. Spoon the lamb mixture into an ovenproof dish and top with the creamy pasta. Sprinkle the cheesy crumbs on top and grill for 2-3 mins. You want the breadcrumbs to go golden brown but not burn, so watch them closely!

If everyone wants their rocket dressed, toss it in the dressing and scatter over the walnuts. If not, just serve some rocket plain and some with dressing. Spoon the creamy lamb pasta bake into bowls with the rocket on the side. Enjoy!
