  • Heat a saucepan and add the remaining oil. Add the garlic and chilli and gently fry for 1 minute until the garlic is golden, then pour over the wine and cook until reduced by half. Season well.
  • Drain the pasta and return to the pan, then toss through the sauce and lamb slices and season. Spoon into serving bowls and serve sprinkled with the mint.
