Our three favourite words? Easy comfort food. This fusilli with super quick ragu is just that. The earthy flavour of the Italian spice works to enhance the flavour of the beef and ragu for a deliciously rich pasta dish. Our chefs have added Worcester sauce, which is sweet, savoury and tangy, along with red wine stock for a smooth, rich ragu sauce. Mixed with chestnut mushrooms, carrot and spinach, this dish is packed with veggies and can be ready, pan to plate in just 20 minutes.
