Lightly grease a 22cm x 32cm baking dish. Heat oil in a large deep non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1-2 mins or until the onion just softens. Add the beef mince and capsicum and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up lumps, for 2 mins or until browned. Add the combined tomato and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5-8 mins or until the sauce thickens. Stir in the spinach.


Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until al dente, adding the baby broccoli and beans for the last 1 min of cooking. Drain well.
