- (1 pound) Ground Lamb
1 pound Barham Family Farm Ground Lamb
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup red wine
11/2 cups water
10 curly-edged lasagna noodles, broken into 2-inch lengths
2 (14-ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 cup heavy cream
Greek feta in brine, drained and crumbled
Optional garnishes: Chopped basil, mint and parsley
In a large skillet with a lid, crumble lamb and cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. If more than 1 tablespoon of fat is rendered, drain off excess. Place lamb on a plate lined with a paper towel.
Add olive oil and onions to the pan and cook until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic, oregano, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add meat back to the skillet. Add red wine and water and bring to a simmer. Spread the noodles across the meat; the noodles will overlap. Spread tomatoes and their juice over the top of lamb mixture and noodles. Place lid on the skillet and cook over low heat for 18-20 minutes, or until noodles are soft.
Stir the casserole and season with salt and pepper. Add heavy cream and allow to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes.
Serve with feta and sprinkle with optional garnishes.
