Smith note: This is a tasty way to use up leftover lamb, providing you haven't over-cooked the lamb in the first place. MY NOTE: Oh yum! I'm a believer in using up every square inch of meat -- especially stuff as expensive as lamb. AND since this year was my first foray into making, serving and EATING lamb, I wanted to get my money's-worth out of the roast! I didn't make it EXACTLY as Smith directed, but we loved it just fine the way I prepped it. Cooking time includes overlapping the pasta cooking with the meat prep/stir-fry.
