Spicy Lamb Pasta Recipe

My spicy lamb pasta recipe tastes very delicious.

The combination of herbs and vegetables are fantastic and compliment the lamb beautifully.

I use dried jalapeno peppers to spice this lamb pasta recipe and the flavour is perfect, chilli flakes could be used as an alternative spice if desired. I also use wholewheat pasta in my lamb recipe that gives this dish a good wholesome flavour.

You really feel like you are eating a good filling plate of food when you eat this recipe, my spicy lamb pasta recipe is by no means a 'light pasta dish'.

If you use fresh shavings of Parmesan cheese to finish this dish, you will be running back to the kitchen for more and more as the taste is combination is out of this world.

I love lamb and throwing it into a quick ragu to go with pasta is one of my favorite ways to use it! Your pasta dish looks great and I love that you used whole wheat pasta.
