Baked Lamb Pasta

Author: Jené Steyn
This is a great comfort food dish. It has a little of everything in it and the colours are quite appealing. The ground cinnamon sounds a bit odd, but it brings out the flavour of the lamb very nicely.

Olive oil

500g minced lamb, not too fatty

1 medium onion, diced

2 celery stalks, chopped
