Beef Bolognese And Macaroni Pies


These pies are delicious, especially during the cooler months

Prep time:20 mins

Cook time:20 mins

Makes: 12


  • 3 sheets frozen shortcrust pastry, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 400g lean beef mince
  • 500g jar Leggo’s Bolognese Pasta Sauce
  • 1 cup cooked macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup grated tasty cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten, for glazing


Step 1

Cut each sheet of pastry into 4 even squares, to yield 12 squares. Press pastry squares into 12 lightly greased 1/3 cup capacity muffin pans.

Step 2

Heat oil in a medium saucepan, add mince and cook until browned. Stir in Leggo’s Pasta Sauce and cooked macaroni. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in parsley. Remove and allow to cool slightly.

Step 3

Spoon meat filling into pastry cases and top with cheese. Gather the corner of each pastry square and twist together to seal well, completely enclosing the filling. Brush with egg glaze.

Step 4

Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C using classic bake or pastry function setting, for 15-20 minutes or until pastry is golden and crisp. Stand for 5 minutes before removing from muffin pans. Serve warm.

Tasty Tip!

Make a family pie, using a 4 cup capacity pie dish and overlapping pastry sheets on the base before cutting to size.
