    IngridNL's Note:

    THIS IS SO GOOD! My sweetie and I prepared this last night and enjoyed it thoroughly. It was so delicious. The leeks disappear and flavour the lamb sauce very lightly. The accompanying yogurt sauce is lovely drizzled over the meat sauce. Very very nice. This recipe is originally from James McNair's favorites with some slight adaptations. In his cookbook, this is served with stuffed leek pasta, whereas we had it with fresh linguini and it was wonderful.

      Prepare the yogurt sauce: Combine yogurt, garlic, and minced mint leaves.
    12. 12
      Allow to sit so that the flavour of the garlic opens into the yogurt.
    13. 13
      I know that two hours is a long time for the meat sauce to cook, but it is well worth it as the flavour of the spices opens out throughout the sauce.
    14. 14
      After the sauce is finished, boil the pasta you wish to use.
    15. 15
      Serve with the pasta sauce over the pasta, and drizzle the yogurt sauce over both.
    16. 16
      You can also use the yogurt sauce as a dressing over an accompanying salad.
