Rigatoni with Angry Lamb Sauce


This is angry lamb sauce because I added a bit too much red pepper flakes but I like it.

1 lb. Rigatoni – reserve some pasta water

1 lb. ground lamb

1 -14oz. can diced Roasted Tomatoes

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup red wine

1/2 -1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes, to taste

1/4 tsp. allspice

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

2 cloves of garlic minced

1 onion, chopped

1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped

salt and pepper , to taste

Parmesan Cheese

Bring water to boil, salt and cook  to al dente. Save a little pasta water for the sauce if needed.

In a large saucepan brown ground lamb, add onions and garlic and saute until translucent. Add wine to deglaze pan along with the seasonings. Simmer until wine nearly cooked off. Stir in cream and add pasta water if needed to thin sauce.  Add drained pasta and parsley to sauce. Garnish with parmesan cheese.
