This is a minced lamb and pasta shell dish tossed in marinara sauce, then covered in a white sauce and Cheddar cheese. I bake it in the oven until the cheese is brown and crispy, and then serve it with a salad!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat the olive oil in a wok over medium heat, add the onion and fry until soft and tender. Stir in the lamb and mushrooms; cook until the meat has browned, stirring occasionally to break up the meat. Pour in the marinara sauce and bring to a simmer. Stir in the cooked pasta, then pour into an ovenproof baking dish.

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Pour in the flour and mix well. Pour in the milk, increase the heat to medium, and cook until thickened. Stir 1/4 cup of the thickened milk into the egg, about a tablespoon at a time to temper the egg, then pour the egg into the remaining sauce and whisk together. Spread this white sauce over the pasta and sprinkle with cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven until browned and crispy, about 30 minutes.
