    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    DH and I really enjoyed this recipe from Bon Appetit. The original recipe also lists a polenta recipe to serve the lamb patties over, but I am not a big fan of polenta. The recipe also stated that you could serve the patties over penne, ziti, or rigatoni noodles. We opted to serve over penne and it worked out quite well.
