This French onion savory mince recipe offers a hearty and flavorful twist on traditional pasta dishes. Combining beef mince with the rich flavors of French onion soup mix and fresh vegetables, this meal is both satisfying and easy to prepare. Here’s how you can make this delicious dish at home:


  • 150g macaroni
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 500g beef mince
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 40g sachet French onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese


  1. Cook the Macaroni:
    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Prepare the Mince:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until translucent and slightly golden, about 5-7 minutes.
    • Add the beef mince to the pan. Break it apart with a spatula and cook until it is browned and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
    • Stir in the diced carrots and cook for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the carrots to soften slightly.
  3. Add Flavorings:
    • Sprinkle the French onion soup mix over the cooked mince and stir to combine thoroughly. Pour in the tomato sauce and mix well, ensuring the mince is evenly coated.
    • Add the frozen peas to the pan, stir, and let the mixture simmer for another 5 minutes, or until the peas are heated through and tender.
  4. Combine with Macaroni:
    • Add the cooked macaroni to the skillet with the beef and vegetable mixture. Stir everything together until well combined and the macaroni is evenly distributed. Allow the mixture to heat through for a few minutes on the stove, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add Cheese and Serve:
    • Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top of the mince and macaroni mixture. Cover the skillet with a lid or aluminum foil for a few minutes to let the cheese melt from the residual heat.
    • Once the cheese is melted and bubbly, give everything a final stir to distribute the melted cheese throughout the dish.
  6. Serve Hot:
    • Serve the French onion savory mince hot, garnished with additional herbs or cheese if desired.


  • Variations: For a richer flavor, consider adding a splash of red wine during the cooking process of the mince.
  • Serving Suggestions: This dish pairs well with a simple green salad or steamed vegetables for a balanced meal.
  • Storage: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove until thoroughly warmed.
