Boil the tomatoes for 1 minute; peel them, remove the seeds and cut into little pieces.
Put the meat, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, aromatic herbs, tomato paste, wine and a little ladle of water in a non-stick frying pan. Season to taste with salt and bring to the boil; at this point lower the flame and keep on cooking, half-covered, stirring now and then, until the meat is tender and cooking juice is well retired. You need 20-30 minutes.
Meanwhile cook the short pasta you've chosen in a plenty of salted water until "al dente" stage. Drain it very well and pour into the pan. Let all the ingredients flavour over a fierce heat for few moments, stirring now and then. Switch off the gas and pour in the olive oil, stir and serve at once. Sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese if you like it.
