I’m absolutely in love with this dish for so many reasons. Not only is it incredibly yummy, it’s a big nod to both of my wonderful grandmothers. The spiced lamb ragu is so Lebanese for Jeanie with the warm coriander and cinnamon. The tender, fresh mint fettuccine is all Italian for Lulu. Putting the two of them together was just a match made in culinary heaven.
Once the dough was rested, it was time to roll it out. This was the most fun part! I love making fresh pasta so much. The detailed instructions on how I like to roll out and cut my pasta dough can be found in my post about fresh pasta making here. The only difference is that this time I doubled the recipe since I wanted more fettuccine.
When it was time to eat, I was so excited about how it all came out. The spiced lamb ragu had so much flavor. It was simply divine! The tender, fresh pasta was so incredible with it. This spiced lamb ragu over fresh mint fettuccine has definitely become a very special favorite in our house! I loved that it had the influences of both of my grandmothers on one plate.
