Having been away for two and bit weeks, Jac couldn’t wait to get back into the kitchen and start cooking. This is what she made for dinner on the day after her return – pasta spirals with bolognese-style sauce. I prefer spaghetti, but we were all out – spirals were the only pasta we had. She made the bolognese using lamb mince for a change, and tinned tomatoes. Since we were also all out of mushrooms, she used tinned champignons. You may see in this photo that the pasta was a little overcooked, but the sauce was fantastic. I just love the flavour of lamb! It really added something special to the bolognese sauce. I ate this great bowlful and felt most content.
