What do you do with left over food? That was a problem I had with roasts. Although we rarely indulge with a huge chunk of meat, I confess that I find that an attractive weekend meal/end of week meal where I can just chuck everything in the oven, turn it on and forget about it.
Of course, who can resist a good meat roasting. Think of the smell lingering in the air!
So with the leftovers, I decided to chop all the meat up, freeze it and cook it with pasta. The pasta soaked up all the lovely flavors from the roast..and it made a very tasty dinner indeed.
Roast Lamb Pasta (serves 4)

2) Meanwhile, reheat lamb roast in a pan till VERY hot. Add other veges inside. Add stock if needed if mixture is a little dry. Simmer for around 5 minutes.
