Break apart the mince with a wooden spoon and then add carrots and soup mix and stir well. Pour in 2 cups of water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir through tomato sauce, peas and macaroni and mix well.

Pour into the greased baking dish, top with cheese and bake for 15 minutes or until golden and melted.
