Lamb Steak with Broccoli Artichoke Tagliatelle

I came up with this pasta dish basically to use up some of the leftovers I had from making other recipes. It all came together very well and made a cheesy veggie pasta dish.

I'm not a huge fan of cottage cheese though. I remember my mum eating it as part of a diet when I was a child and it has always had that reputation of being a rubbery white tasteless yucky thing that you only ate when trying to loose weight. I was sure I could do better though and make it actually taste palatable. Mixing it with other ingredients helped, the Parmesan also helped but I still don't really like the texture of the curds. Hmm maybe I'll never like this stuff!

Lamb Steak and Broccoli Artichoke Tagliatelle
(Serves 1)

1 lamb steak
1 tsp Old Bay or Cajun Seasoning
60g tagliatelle
3 artichokes, from a can or jar, cut into quarters
1/2 small head broccoli, cut into florets
1 tbsp creme fraiche
1-2 tbsp cottage cheese
Parmesan, grated

Preheat the grill.

Shake the seasoning over the lamb steak and leave for a few mins.

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the past according to packet instructions, adding the broccoli for the last 3-4 mins. Drain.

Meanwhile cook the lamb for about 3-4 mins on each side.

Combine the pasta, broccoli, artichokes, creme fraiche, cottage cheese and Parmesan and mix together.

Serve the lamb with the pasta and a green salad.

  1. I have similar reservations about cottage cheese - but I must admit, this recipe sounds scrummy enough for me to revisit it!
