I have to admit that I've struggled with lamb in the past, especially when I was pregnant. It was the smell that put me off - it was too lamby! (sounds bonkers).
However I've made a conscious effort to embrace it and this slow cooked lamb mince recipe is beautiful. The kids loved it, hubby loved it and I loved it. It was so good I'm doing it again next week.
I served this with some pasta. However I'm tempted to try cooking the pasta in the slow cooker next time, along with the sauce - you can add it during the last 30 minutes of cooking. I'll let you know how it turns out.
I crumbled over some feta on serving but grated cheddar would be fine too.
