  5. Add the vegetables along with the tinned tomatoes to the cooked mince

  7. Simmer for 20 minutes

  8. To make the white sauce, melt the butter/low fat spread at a low heat. Gradually add the flour 

  9. Add the milk, stirring continually. Add the nutmeg and cinnamon. Keep cooking until the sauce is thickened. Take off the heat
