  1. Preheat the grill to high. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the mince, onion, carrot and garlic and fry for 5 mins until the mince is cooked through and the veg is beginning to soften. Add the chopped tomatoes and bring to the boil. 
  2. Meanwhile, tip the white sauce mix into a small saucepan, add the milk and heat over a medium heat, whisking continuously for 2-3 mins until thickened. 
  3. Spoon half the mince into a small circular dish and top with 1 tortilla, followed by half the white sauce, the remaining mince, the second tortilla and the remaining white sauce. Finish with a sprinkle of cheese. Place directly under the grill for 5 mins or until golden and serve with the tomato on the side.
