For the casserole, pre heat the oven to 180°C.


Heat the oil in pot over medium heat, add the onions and garlic and sauté, 2 minutes.


Add the beef mince and sauté, 5 minutes.


Stir in the tomato paste, tomato sauce, tinned tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, oreganum, cumin, salt and chili flakes.


Cover with a lid and simmer, 15 minutes. Stir in the green peppers.


Spoon the mixture into a 22cm x 18cm baking dish.


Top with the grated cheese. Cut the rolls into 1cm thick rounds and spread with the butter.


Arrange the bread over the cheese and meat mixture and bake until golden and crisp, 10-15 minutes.


For the salsa, stir all of the ingredients together. Serve the casserole with the salsa on the side.

For a leaner meat alternative, replace the beef with ostrich mince.
