Farfalle with Lamb Ragu

Honestly, this recipe could be viewed as a different take on a spaghetti meal. This time you use ground lamb which is leaner and has much more inherent flavor than the classic ground beef. I was in the mood for a comfort food dinner with flare. I found it in this Farfalle with Lamb Ragu recipe. This is an easy two pot meal- one for the pasta cooking and one for the lamb ragu. All you have to chop is 1/2 cup onion (which you can buy already chopped in the freezer of the grocery store) and 1/4 cup chopped carrot along with 2 garlic cloves minced (which can also be bought minced in a jar). The rest is just assembling. The yield is 4 servings, the calories are 464. We completed the meal with a simple tossed green salad, which can be store bought already pre-washed in a  bag, with 2 tablespoons lite balsamic dressing (I like Newman's Own) for 45 calories. The total calorie count for the meal is 509. It was a tasty and satisfying meal, fit for family and friends. It was a definite repeat that my husband and daughter really liked!
