How to cook it

1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling water, following packet directions, until tender. Drain. Cover.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add kangaroo mince. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up mince, for 8 minutes or until browned.

3. Add tomatoes, mushrooms and capsicum. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until mushrooms are softened. Add sauce, peas and spinach. Simmer for 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted.
