Ingredients

Lamb Chops:

  • 1.5 lb lamb chops
  • 1 cup roma cherry tomatoes halved
  • 12 garlic gloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • salt and pepper

Pasta:

  • 2 cups dry pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup roma cherry tomatoes halved
  • 4 tablespoons marinara sauce
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil chopped
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Place the lamb chops in a baking dish and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Pat down with your hands to make sure the condiments get into the meat. Top with a few tablespoons of fresh parsley.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chops to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  • Add the chops back to the baking dish in one single layer, top with Roma cherry tomatoes and minced garlic. Bake for 10-15 minutes for medium well, and less for medium.
  • In the meantime cook pasta based on box directions. Once pasta is done heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet, add the drained pasta, Roma cherry tomatoes, marinara sauce, basil and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 3-4 minutes only.
  • Remove lamb chops from the oven, top with the remaining fresh parsley and serve over pasta.
