Red Pepper and Rosemary Lamb with Pasta

I didn’t read the recipe accurate enough and I had to do it on the fly. Glad, I have rosemary in my garden, its flavour fits perfectly to lamb mince.

Rosemary means in the language of flowers remembrance and love. Greek students believed it improved the memory, and so they wore it in their hair when studying for exams. In France, during the Middle Ages, it was combined with juniper and burned in bunches in hospitals to kill bacteria. In my garden rosemary holds the fort against the slugs as I mentioned before. Another tale says that if a rosemary plant grows vigorously in a family’s garden that it is the woman who wears the pants in the family. You have to ask my three gentlemen, if the tale is true.
