Heat a large wok or heavy-based pan on low heat then add olive oil, garlic and bay leaves. Sauté until the garlic slightly turns brown.

Turn the heat up, add the lamb and sauté until brown. You can skip browning the meat if you are using leftover lamb for your ragu sauce.

Pour the dry white wine into the pan and reduce until syrupy consistency. Add the sweet red peppers and chilli (if using), then sauté for a few minutes.

When the sauce is ready, cook your choice of pasta al dente. Don't cook it all the way as it will cook extra few more minutes with the ragu which will help the sauce comes together with the pasta.

Add some pasta water if the sauce is too thick. Add chopped parsley, stir well and serve with grated parmesan or pecorino cheese.

You can use leftover lamb meat for this recipe. Just make sure you reduce the cooking time to one hour and only use half the amount of liquid.
