Green lentil, pancetta and pasta soup

It is Italian in essence, adapted from one of my all time fave books, Nigellissima. It's also a great way to use up little packet-ends of pasta - we forever seem to have bags with 100g or so amounts in, which is little use to anyone really, until you make this beautiful soup. 250g small pasta, mixed up leftovers, or something like macaroni. Add the pasta and cook, uncovered, for about 10 minutes. 250g small pasta, mixed up leftovers, or something like macaroni

Lamb Ragu with Papperdelle Pasta

Lamb Ragu with Papperdelle Pasta

What a lovely change from the usual minced beef Ragu this meal from 'Nigellissima' was. Put a large pan of water on to boil for the pasta, and warm the garlic oil in a small, heavy-based pan that comes with a lid, and cook the spring onions, stirring for a minute or so

Lamb Ragu

However, in my frenzy to cook as much as possible from Nigellissima. Nigella always bangs on about these exciting types of pasta that I vow to get next time I'm near anywhere that sells such a thing but I always end up ordering online from Sainsburys, so instead of the mafaldine or pappardelle that the recipe requires, I used good old tagliatelle and it worked just fine
