Super Cheap But Delicious Pulled Lamb Ragu On Gluten Free Pasta

slow pulled lamb ragu on gluten free pasta with braised carrots and garlic string beansOk, you got me, I liked pulled things. Winter is an excellent excuse to gather with friends and nestle over a delicious hot pot of slow cooked deliciousness. Lamb shanks in particular are a ridiculously good life choice – they’re super cheap, tasty and such a freaking crowd pleaser – with minimal effort. It’s almost embarrassing that it isn’t harder to make… the only thing you need here is patience – which for some is hard, but if you put it on in the early afternoon, go do your thang, then all your efforts will be immensely rewarded.slow pulled lamb ragu on gluten free pasta 3This was created one afternoon a few weeks ago when I was working at my pal Lisa from couturing.com’s house… if you follow her on Instagram, you’ll be following her renovation progress. You may have noticed that there is one requirement for everything in her house… MARBLE! I wouldn’t be surprised if she decided to pave her drive way in marble.slow pulled lamb ragu on gluten free pasta 2Anyho, I am not big on pasta as it hurts my tummy when I eat too much of it and I can’t control myself to eat only a small amount of it – I’m too greedy! This gluten free penne pasta from Barilla is an excellent solution as it is much gentler on the digestive system as it is made from both corn and rice flours. Surprising, it doesn’t taste like cardboard like most gluten free pastas do. The package is actually right – it tastes like real pasta :).slow pulled lamb ragu on gluten free pasta
