STEP 1

STEP 3

Add the pasta sauce and ½ cup (125ml) water. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 mins or until sauce thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper.

STEP 4

Position grill rack about 13cm below grill and preheat grill on high. Spread potato mixture over the meat filling. Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan. Grill for 4 mins or until top is golden. Stand for 5 mins before serving.
