Greek Pasta With Lamb, Mint, and Feta

Sharing is caring!

Greek pasta with lamb, mint, and feta cheese is a hearty pasta dish everyone will love. The big, bold Greek flavors make this a unique and delicious dish.

I think lamb is my new favorite meat these days. 

I love it all different ways but last night I made a pasta sauce out of ground lamb that was quite tasty.  It reminded me of an Italian Bolognese sauce which is good because that’s what I was going after.

But, getting to all of them will take time. Please bear with me.

This is very yummy looking and you REALLY demystified it. I am always a little scared of cookieing with ingredients I am not familiar with. This was VERY helpful!

This sounds perfect! real comfort food and its a good thing the air temp outside is -8, and is not going to get much warmer. I love the Walnuts in this dish.
