  • 30ml - olive oil
  • 1 - onion, chopped
  • 2 - garlic cloves, bruised
  • 2 - carrots, grated
  • 2 - celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 750g - minced meat
  • 1 - large tin chopped tomatoes
  • 30ml - Worcestershire sauce
  • - salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 500ml - ricotta cheese
  • 2 - eggs
  • 15ml - fresh oregano
  • 80ml - mozzarella cheese, grated
Preheat the oven. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion until it is soft and glossy. Add the garlic and stir-fry for a further minute. Stir in the carrot and celery and stir-fry until tender.

Add the minced meat and stir it with a large fork to break up the lumps so that it is crumbly and fries evenly.

Add the tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the mixture thickens. Spoon into an ovenproof dish.

Mix the ricotta, eggs, oregano and Mozzarella cheese together in a mixing bowl and spoon the mixture over the minced meat. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
