Pasta is easy to make, and takes minutes in the kitchen. I had leftover ground lamb from the night before so I thought about making this dish. Give it a go tonight!
Penne in Tomato Sauce Yields: 4-6 servings
1/2 package or 227g Penne pasta
1 can (156ml) tomato paste
1 C cooked ground lamb
1 C pasta water
Salt and pepper to taste
Start by preparing the penne. Drop pasta in salted boiling water and cook for 10 minutes, until penne has a nice but tender bite to it. Drain pasta water but reserve some for use in the sauce.
Next, prepare the sauce. Add tomato paste to pan with 1/2 of the pasta water and stir to dilute paste.
Next, toss the pasta into the sauce. Add ground lamb, remaining 1/2 cup pasta water, and stir.
Finally, add salt and pepper to desired taste and voila! Dinner is served. Enjoy with salad or as a side to a main dish.
Bon appétit! xo
