I made this the other night and hubby absolutely LOVED it! We've recently changed our eating habits from less beef to more lean meats like Lamb and Bison. I was at a loss as to what to make with the ground Lamb. This was perfect and easy. I served it over a bed of brown rice and a broccoli side dish. Just a side note: I used Almond Milk instead of cow's milk.
