Spaghetti with Mexican Sauce

|1 quantity of cooked minced beef (see Cheese and Herb-crusted Cottage Pie recipe)|
|1 dessertspoon oil|
|1 small green pepper, finely chopped|
|1 large clove of garlic, crushed|
|1 heaped tablespoon tomato purée|
|2 tablespoons red wine or dry cider|
|¼ level teaspoon crushed dried chilli or chilli powder|
|1 level dessertspoon fresh chopped parsley|
|plenty of grated Parmesan to sprinkle over|
