I a bowl mix the mince, bread crumbs, herbs, sauce and salt and pepper well.

Place a frypan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil and add the onion, cook until lightly golden then add the garlic and jalepeno, stir until fragrant.

Pour in the red wine and simmer for 5 minutes, then add the tinned tomatoes.
