      Very good! I used 1 pound of lamb and 1/2 pound of beef. I don't typically like layering the sauce and meat in this type of dish, so I combined the meat sauce with the pasta, then topped with the white sauce. I used kalamata olives, fresh parsley from the garden, and added some nutmeg to the white sauce. I was a bit skeptical of making the sauce in the microwave, but was pleasantly surprised by the result! I would definitely make this again. Made for ZWT6.

      Oh this was so good. I left out the olives and added some red pepper flakes for some spice. Everyone enjoyed it, though I did get a suggestion to add more tomato sauce next time; I think we're just used to saucy pastas. Other than that though, it was great! I really loved the cream sauce; that definitely made it for me. It was a really nice balance of flavours. Thanks!
