Super delicious pasta! It reminded me of a dish that my parents used to make when I was a kid. I love orecchiette pasta, but it can sometimes be hard to find. Rigatoni or another similar pasta makes a great substitute.

I really enjoy eating lamb, so trying it in this pasta was really exciting for me. Orecchiette is a nice, hearty pasta, so it paired nicely with the meat and veggies.

My husband grew up in Australia and he is a lamb fanatic so I try to find new recipes to use with lamb. He absolutely loves this dish and so do I!

I made this with ground beef and shells because I couldn't find orecchiette. The peas are perfect for spring, it was really good. Next time I might try it with chopped asparagus too.

I used mint from my own garden for the first time this spring and it was so fresh and fragrant. If you're entertaining at all this summer, make this pasta! Your guests will love it.

I used ground turkey instead of lamb. The orecchiette is my favorite, they're fantastic. I usually only ever use this type of pasta when I have a heavy thick sauce, but they work for this recipe too.
