  • 4 New Zealand grass-fed lamb loin chops (Tip: look for the Taste Pure Nature Logo)
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Pasta:

  • 6 cups brown button mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 6 oz broccolini, chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 10 oz linguine pasta
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped


  • 1. Place lamb loin chops on a big plate. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over the lamb on both sides.
  • 2. Heat a large, high-walled pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • 3. Once the oil is hot, add the lamb and cook without touching about 3 minutes or until the bottom turns golden brown. Flip to cook the other side for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the lamb from the pan, place on a clean plate and set aside.

For the Pasta:

  • 4. In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add mushrooms and sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Sear for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once browned, remove mushrooms from pan and set aside.
  • 5. To the same pot, add broccolini and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes, or until wilted. Once wilted, remove broccolini from pan and set aside with mushrooms.
  • 6. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil, garlic and red pepper flakes and stir for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add white wine to the pot and increase heat to medium-high. Scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • 7. Add chicken broth, remaining salt and pasta noodles. Boil, stirring constantly, 8 to 10 minutes or until the pasta is al dente and the sauce is thick, but not dry.
  • 8. Turn off the heat. Add parsley, cooked mushrooms and broccolini to the pot, and toss well. Taste the pasta and adjust seasoning by adding more salt and/or olive oil, if desired.
  • 9. Divide the pasta between 4 plates, top with the lamb chops and serve immediately.
