Step 1

In a pot that can go into the oven, brown the chopped onion with the garlic in hot oil for 5 minutes. Add 200 ml of water, the wine, tomato paste, bouquet garni, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.

Turn the oven to 180°C (gas mark 4). Brown the lamb chops, 2 minutes per side, in a large hot frying pan. Add salt and pepper, keep warm.

Cook the pasta in salted water with the saffron. Drain, stirring to remove all the water.
