Bake for 15 minutes until the meat has started to brown.

Remove from the oven after 45 minutes or when the sauce has reduced down. Then either serve as it is, mashing the carrots down a little to evenly distribute them, or puree with a handheld blender. Serve with pasta and/or green beans. Add a little grated cheese before serving.
