Add the mince and brown, then add the tomatoes. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add a pinch of sugar and season to taste with salt and black pepperAdd the mince to the pasta and stir gently to combine. Pour into a greased ovenproof dish and sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the top is golden.
