  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g Cooks’ Ingredients Frozen Soffritto Mix
  • 250g Macsween Haggis
  • 400g can Essential Lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 500g pack passata with chopped basil
  • 360g Essential Penne (dried)
  • Grated Parmigiano Reggiano, to serve (optional)
  • basil leaves, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the soffritto mix and fry for 6-8 minutes until any liquid has evaporated and the vegetables are starting to caramelise.

  2. Remove the casing from the haggis and roughly chop. Add to the pan and fry for 3-4 minutes. Add the lentils and stir together. Pour in the passata, bring to the boil, then simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until thick and saucy; season.

  3. As the sauce is simmering, cook the penne according to pack instructions, then drain, reserving a mug of pasta water. Toss the pasta through the sauce, adding a little pasta water to loosen the sauce, if needed. Scatter with the cheese and basil, if liked.

Cook’s tip



Cut into chunks and add to minced lamb to bulk out a shepherd’s pie filling. Or you could pan-fry and add to a béchamel sauce when making Welsh rarebit.
