Pumpkin’s Low Fat Lamb and Rissoni

Posted under Meat Dishes & Lamb & Low Fat Diet


Lamb cutlets/lamb rump steaks (I used 2 small rump steaks per person)

1.5 cups rissoni pasta

200g low fat ricotta

2 garlic cloves

100g semi sun dried tomatoes

Juice of 2 lemons

2 tbls olive oil

2 small zucchinis (cut into rounds)

A few handfuls of baby spinach

Lemon segments to serve


Combine ricotta, garlic, semi sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice and oil in a food processor. Blend until smooth. (If you don’t have a food processor, just shop the tomatoes and garlic finely and mix well) Put aside.

Bring water in a saucepan to the boil. Add risoni and cook, simmering until almost al dente. Meanwhile, heat a BBQ plate or fry pan and cook lamb till golden brown.

Add zucchini to the boiling pasta for the last 5 mins of cooking. Cook until zucchini and risoni are tender. Drain and add the baby spinach. Add ricotta mixture and gently stir to combine well.

Place a couple of spoonfuls of risoni mixture on a plate and top with lamb. Serve with lemon wedges and a salad.

NB: This is a delicious, creamy tasting dinner, with very little fat. Perfect for those watching their weight but wanting to eat flavoursome food.

George Gregan’s Lamb Chops

Posted under Lamb & Whats for Dinner

8 lamb chump chops

100ml good red wine
100 ml dark soy sauce
3 tbsn oyster sauce
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 sprigs rosemary leaves removed
rock salt
1/4 cup olive oil

1. Put the lamb chops in a zip lock plastic bag. Put the marinade ingredients in a jug and whisk with a fork to combine. Pour the marinade over the chops, seal the bag and turn it over a couple of times until the chops are well coated in the marinade. Leave to marinade for up to six hours.

2. Cook on the BBQ for 6-8 minutes each side (although tonight I grilled them and they were still delish!)
