Slow-Cook Lamb With Pasta, Fresh Tomato, Basil, Olives and Feta

"I made this last night and it was really delicous, especially as I sourced the tomaotes and basil from my garden. Simple, but tasty. It's also easy, but benefits from a little planning so that lamb can cook slowly. This is a generous serve for 2 - quantities can easily be increased. I used low fat feta and spray oil to reduce calories."

<img src=""> I love entertaining at home and having friends and family over for a meal is one of my favourite ways to catch up. I'm a working mother of one, so I'm often looking for things that taste and look fantastic - but are simple to prepare. Gone are the days when I'd spend all day assembling a meal for the night's dinner party! My husband loves to eat - and occassionally bbqs - and I'm hoping that one day the palate of my discerning 6 yr old daughter will enjoy both the outputs and endeavours of my kitchen. I'm always to looking for new ideas and inspirations. I also love to pass on my successful recipes to others. I frequently create or adapt dishes that I've seen, read or tasted someweere. I'm also conscious of my family's health, so am always keen to explore how I can reduce the fat content but keep things tasting delicious.
