Diana's Lamb & Rice Noodle Special

Diane Kay Kafka


Im not a fan of Italian food because of my wheat allergy but I like Spaghetti noodles, specifically rice noodles. I came up with a Greek-style spaghetti using lamb instead of pork or you can substitute turkey, just an alternative for the traditional recipe. I love it, being a bit Greek.
