Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground lamb

  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 stalk celery, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

  • 1 cup uncooked orzo pasta

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Directions

  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the lamb, and cook until browned and no longer pink, breaking up into crumbles, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, celery, orzo, salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the orzo is tender and has absorbed the liquid from the tomatoes, about 12 minutes.
