A healthier lamb ragu pasta slow cooker recipe. This ragu is suitable to freeze too. Simply place ragu in airtight containers, cover and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost portions overnight in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stovetop then simply add to cooked pasta.

Slow Cooked Lamb Ragu with Pappardelle
Ingredients:
Method:
  1. Trim lamb of excess fat and cut into 5cm pieces
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook lamb, for 1-2 minutes each side, or until browned. Transfer to a slow cooker
  3. Heat remaining oil in same pan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery, and cook stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant
  4. Stir in Celebrate Health Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce, canned tomatoes, 125ml (1/2 cup) water and vinegar and bring to the boil. Transfer mixture to slow cooker, ensuring sauce evenly covers the lamb
  5. Cook, covered on high for 4 hours (or on slow for 8 hours) or until lamb is very tender. Using 2 forks coarsely shred lamb
  6. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water following packet instructions. Drain
  7. Serve hot pasta topped with the lamb ragu. Serve sprinkled with parmesan and basil
Tips & Hints:
  • Each serve of ragu contains over half of your daily protein needs.
  • This lamb ragu is suitable to freeze (without the pasta). Place ragu in airtight containers, cover and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost portions overnight in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stovetop.
