A platter full of al dente fettuccine smothered in slow cooked fall apart lamb in a rich tomato gravy topped with fresh herbs and parmesan – heaven on earth.

Serves 4 Prep 30 minutes Cook 3 hours


  • 2 tablespoons Beef Marrow (we love Hansells)
  • 500g stewing lamb pieces (we love Pure South)
  • 1 large brown onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 slices streaky bacon – finely chopped (we love Hellers)
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped thyme (we love Superb Herb)
  • 1 cup red wine (we love Ara)
  • 1 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1x 400g cans diced tomatoes
  • 1L  beef stock
  • 500g dried fettuccine pasta (we love Diamond)
  • Grated parmesan cheese, to serve
  • Handful of parsley to serve


  1. Heat beef marrow in a large, heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Add lamb. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until browned. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add onion, garlic, bacon, carrot, celery and thyme to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until onion has softened. Add wine. Cook for out for 1 minute. Add tomato paste, canned tomato and stock and stir to combine. Return lamb to pan and bring to the boil, reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover for 2 hours 30 minutes or until meat is tender. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, following packet directions, until tender. Drain.
  4. Transfer to a platter. Top with lamb mixture, parsley and parmesan. Serve immediately!
