Here's a great way to use any leftover roasted leg of lamb after an Easter or Passover celebration, or any night of the week when you've got leftovers from a Sunday roast.
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.
