Lamb puttanesca with rice & piadina

A beautifully easy mid week meal that has become a staple in the Real Pasta home - even Miss Mac loves! (and she doesn't like puttanesca)

Piadina is a simple Italian flatbread that is just so yummy scooped up with this puttanesca mix. Prepare your favourite simple greens on the side for a full meal.


1 jar of Real Pasta Puttanesca

300g lamb mince

1 onion, sliced

1tsp cumin powder

1tsp coriander powder

1 C rice

2 Tbsp currants

1 batch Piadina flat bread - I use this recipe here

Your favourite greens on the side


- Heat a dash of oil in a pan and add the sliced onion

- Once onion is mostly cooked, add cumin/coridander and a splash more oil if needed to soak up the spices a little bit. Cook further 2 mins.

- Add lamb mince, break up well with a spoon and cook evenly

- Meanwhile cook the rice. I usually do 1 C rice 2 C (scant) water, boil it for 5 mins or so and then turn the heat off, pop the lid on tight and leave it to absorb. Sometimes I put it back on low for a few mins to finish it off if needed.

- Once lamb is cooked, add the jar of puttanesca and sprinkle the currants in, mix well to combine. Stir the rice through.- Serve with piadina and veges on the side
