Spinach and Lamb Are A Match Made in Heaven | Asian-Inspired Seashell Pasta

A friend told me that her unbelievably skinny sister can wolf down huge mounds of rice and feels faint if she doesn’t eat it for a few days. That’s not hard to believe, take me back to high school please, let me relive my eating glory days 🙌🏼.

Truth be told, I have been having Chinese soup for a few days now but I feel like being a little naughty today. I just grabbed the minced lamb from the fridge, decided that the potatoes I had reserved for my Chinese ABC soup would be one of the stars of the dish today. 

The Earth has a 7 billion population so I don’t think I’m the first to have thought to do this recipe, but I just kinda whipped this up from staring at my fridge and pantry 👀. It is sooo delicious, I’m so sad to ration my portion because, well. I’m not 14 anymore, am I?
