Angel Hair Pasta with Minced Lamb

Angel hair pasta cooks really quickly and it incorporates into any sauce wonderfully. I find I cook with angel hair pasta a lot these days. This is a quick and yummy pasta dish. This one uses Australian ground lamb which is so tender, it cooks within minutes @sarchakra
