Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy pot over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion, carrot, celery, parsnip, and garlic and let the vegetables sweat for a few minutes.

Add the lamb, followed by the tomato purée and wine. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Then, add the water just to cover everything in the pot. Add the herbs and season with a little salt and pepper. Cook to reduce the liquid by ½.

Then, add the chile flakes, currants, pine nuts, capers, anchovies, and olives. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.                       

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions. Drain.             

In a pan, combine as much sauce as you like with the pasta adding a little grated pecorino cheese and serve in warm bowls with more grated cheese. Finish with a little grated orange zest.
