Not everyone likes lamb, if you are one of those, feel free to substitute the lamb with regular beef or even turkey! I found spinach noodles in the organic section of the supermarket but if you want to use regular spaghetti or your favorite shape of pasta, do it!!
This is my version of pasta and meatballs. It has so much flavor and is more fun than what people are used to. Use a fattier minced meat so that your meatballs are not dry. If you want to save time, don’t make meatballs! Make this pasta and meat sauce. To do so, just skip the step of forming the meatballs. Add the olive oil to the pan, sear the ground meat, add the rest of the ingredients and follow the rest of the directions from when you would have added the meatballs back into the pot. And done!
If you are eating this salad by itself (not as a side to pasta) feel free to add grilled chicken, steak, tofu, cheese or tuna! It’s a great appetizer salad too if you want to add pulled fish.
If you have leftover chicken soup, this is an amazing way to have an entirely new dish. Strain the soup and use it like stock. Discard the vegetables and keep the chicken!! Feel free to add rice noodles, or rice to make it more filling but a few bowls of this hearty goodness and you will never look at leftover chicken soup the same again!
This salad is so simple yet so fragrant and meaty in flavor! If you have a vegan coming to your meal this is a great dish to serve. Add marinated red peppers for a color and flavor pop!
