Why this recipe works:

Even though it’s got big, bold flavors but doesn’t take long to get dinner on the table. Approximately 30 minutes is all you’ll need.

Can a different ground meat be substituted for lamb?

Sure thing!

It’s not a problem to swap out ground beef, ground turkey, ground pork, or even ground chicken if that’s what you like, or already have on hand.

Since the ground meat is cooked thoroughly prior to adding the final ingredients, there’s no worry about the protein being undercooked before serving.

Can the red wine be omitted from this recipe?

Yep!

If you’d like to leave the wine out entirely, all you need to do is substitute additional beef broth (or beef stock) in it’s place.

Can white wine be used in place of red wine?

Yes, but make sure it’s a dry white wine like a Pino Grigio or Pino Blanc, and not something sweet like a Riesling or Moscato.

Can dried rosemary be substituted for fresh?

Yes, but dried herbs are always stronger and more concentrated in flavor than fresh, so cut back on the amount of dried rosemary to half of what is called for in the recipe.

How to make Linguine with Lamb:

  • Cook and drain the linguine according to package directions. Keep warm (not shown).
  • In a large skillet, brown the ground lamb over medium/high heat.
  • Add the onion and red pepper flakes.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally for 1-2 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low and stir in the beef stock, wine, butter, tomatoes, vinegar, and the pasta water.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, to slightly reduce (approximately 5 minutes).
  • Toss the lamb and sauce with the cooked pasta.
  • Garnish with Parmesan cheese if desired, and serve.
