It's flavours are truly enmeshed in Old Aussie buffet spreads of the late 60's I think:) You'll note it's heavy on meat vs pasta ratio as befits our carnivorous past! This is the recipe altered ever so slightly to bring it, lol well into the 80's, though just barely!
- 1 kilogram minced beef
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 500 grams macaroni
- 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 large onion (finely chopped)
- 1 small red pepper (finely chopped)
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (finely chopped)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 4 tablespoons tomato paste
- 750 millilitres water (or stock seasonings)
