As an alternative to the ever-popular midweek spaghetti Bolognese, try this quick and easy lamb ragu. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our slow-cooked shoulder of lamb dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and fry the shallots for 5 minutes, adding the garlic and oregano for the last minute. Stir through the tomato purée, chopped tomatoes, sugar, lamb, olives and 200ml (7fl oz) water. Simmer for 10 minutes until thickened.
Meanwhile, heat and cook the polenta following the pack instructions. Serve the polenta topped with the lamb ragu and a little grated Parmesan.
