Prep 10 min
Total 45 min
Serves 6



1 tbsp
medium onion, chopped
garlic cloves, minced
450 g
ground lamb
3 tbsp
1 tsp
1 tbsp
chopped fresh rosemary
1 798-mL can
no-salt-added diced tomatoes
2 cups
no-salt-added beef or chicken broth
250 g
gemelli or other small pasta, (3 1/2 cups)


  • HEAT oil in a large pot over medium. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened, 3 min. Increase heat to high and add lamb. Cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 min.
  • STIR in tomato paste, salt, pepper flakes and rosemary and cook 2 min. Stir in tomatoes and broth, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 min.
  • ADD pasta and return to a boil. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until pasta is al dente, about 10 min.

Kitchen Tip: Any small pasta will work in this sauce, but cooking times will vary. Simmered in the sauce, pasta may take slightly longer than the time given in package directions.
