  1. Step 1

    Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Refresh under cold water. Drain well.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until the onion softens. Add the mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up lumps, for 5 mins or until browned.
  3. Step 3

    Stir in the tomato paste and 2 cups (500ml) water. Stir in the Italian herbs, onion powder, garlic powder, rosemary and dried basil. Cook, stirring, for 10 mins or until the mixture thickens. Stir in the stock powder. Season.
  4. Step 4

    Divide pasta among serving plates. Spoon over the mince mixture and sprinkle with basil leaves and parmesan.
