DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter.
  • (Medium heat) Add the leek and carrot.
  • Cook about 5 minutes Add the ground lamb.
  • Cook until no longer pink.
  • Add wine and increase heat to high.
  • Cook and stir until the wine evaporates.
  • Add tomatoes, bay leaf, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper.
  • Reduce heat to simmer.
  • Cover.
  • Simmer for 2 hours.
  • Prepare the yogurt sauce: Combine yogurt, garlic, and minced mint leaves.
  • Allow to sit so that the flavour of the garlic opens into the yogurt.
  • 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.
  • After the sauce is finished, boil the pasta you wish to use.
  • Serve with the pasta sauce over the pasta, and drizzle the yogurt sauce over both.
  • You can also use the yogurt sauce as a dressing over an accompanying salad.
