Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Finely chop the carrot (unpeeled). Cut the yellow squash into 1cm chunks. Finely chop the garlic. Alternative Step 1 if you've received capsicum: Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Finely chop the carrot (unpeeled). Cut the capsicum into 1cm chunks. Finely chop the garlic.
Cook the fettuccine in the boiling water until 'al dente', 9 minutes. Reserve some pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people), then drain the pasta and return to the saucepan. Drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking and cover to keep warm. TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the beef mince, breaking up with a spoon, until just browned, 3-4 minutes.
Add the carrot and squash to the beef and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 minutes. Alternative Step 4 if you've received capsicum: Add the carrot and capsicum to the beef and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 minutes.
Reduce the heat to a medium heat. Add the garlic, tomato paste, Nan's Special Seasoning and the garlic & herb seasoning. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the light thickened cream, reserved pasta water, beef stock pot and baby spinach leaves. Cook, stirring, until warmed through, 1 minute. Remove from the heat, add the fettuccine and toss to coat. Season to taste. TIP: Add a splash more water to your sauce if it's looking dry!
Divide the Nan's creamy beef and veggie pasta between bowls. Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese to serve.
