This is a comforting meal great for cozy nights. Lamb shoulder is slowly braised in red wine along with root vegetables, cherry tomatoes, and fresh herbs. The dish is served with pasta (chef's choice) cooked al dente, a flavorful sauce made using the braising juices, and comes with Parmesan cheese for you to sprinkle on to taste.

The ragu was delicious. It didn't integrate very well with the pasta though, leaving most of the pasta feeling unsauced and making it hard to get bites with the "right" amount of sauce. The taste was otherwise spot on.

The lamb was moist and tender even though we had to reheat it. It tasted great!! Will definitely order again.

Very poor dish, the worst we have had yet. Well below the standard of Munchery. Ours was plain noodles and pulled meat, maybe a sauce was missing? We made some shells and cheese instead.

Very good but the paste portion is a bit small.

The Lamb was tender but lacked flavor also the sauce was watery. I had to add my own special seasoning and such to it.

It was missing the marinara sauce :(

Looking nothing like the photo, ragu had the pale grey color and consistency of dog food. Guess they ran out of tomato paste in the kitchen. Edible but bland. Munchery has really gone downhill lately. Next time I'll use Spoonrocket or Sprig.

The amount of pasta was totally lame. And that's the cheapest part!

Too much excess fat and sinewy material in this

Braised Lamb to sigh for. Tender and flavorful. Peas and tomatoes over pasta. A dish to warm you up on a rainy day.

Something changed with this recipe. When I opened the container, it was brown and milky looking. I love good tasting food, but it needs to be visually appealing.

All the lamb was mostly fat. Disgusting.
4 Stars
Very good flavor. Took longer to heat than the instructions recommended, and the pasta got hard before it was heated through; it would have been better if the pasta had been in a separate plastic container instead of sitting in the open container.

Had to throw most of it away because the meat was pretty gross. A huge piece of skin in it.
5 Stars
Heavenly flavors. This ragu is a perfect example that flavor not spice is the secret to a great dish. The lamb so tender and the penne pasta was al dente. It reheated like a dream. Perfect for a chilly night. Definitely will order again!
4 Stars
Portion size was pretty generous IMO but the ragu was lacking sauce and a little dry.
3 Stars
The flavor was good but there was a big blob of fat in the meat. I am pretty tolerant of some fat with meat but this was too much.

Something was just a bit off with the taste. Otherwise, an enjoyable meal.
5 Stars
Amazing. One of the best Munchery dishes I've ever had. Chef Reyes killed it again with this one. 10/10

Very delicious but needs more sauce. I added some broth to thin it out a little. Lamb was perfectly cooked and seasoned

5 Stars
Tasty, ample sized meal. Very satisfying.
3 Stars
This dish is wholesome, but suffers from blandness. If I had time, I would have sautéed an onion to stir in with the lamb, and some spices.
4 Stars
Excellent!
5 Stars
One of the best Munchery meals I've had. The meat is rich and flavorful (tastes like real lamb, not like beef), the pasta was perfectly cooked, the sauce was light and simple, and the vegetables (the tomatoes in particular) gave a nice acidic pop.
4 Stars
My huz loved this dish. I don't eat lamb, but after reheating the dish you can smell the overwhelming gaminess of the lamb. It didn't bother him, but if you have a low tolerance for gaminess then this dish is not for you.
3 Stars
the flavors were wonderful, with the lamb braised until tender. the amount of sauce was lacking so there was nothing to bring the dish together. would order again with the hopes of a bit more sauce.
5 Stars
Loved this. A true pasta asciutta... not a saucy sauce but the meat was juicy and delicious and the pasta was not overcooked. Will get again.
2 Stars
where's the sauce?! need more sauce! it was so dry! expected more than just meat and fusilli pasta. looked nothing like the photo. lately, i feel like i need to have a backup dinner.
5 Stars
This was fantastic. I'm not even a fan of cherry tomatoes, but they added such a fresh splash of flavor to this dish each time I hit one.
4 Stars
It was delicious except for one thing... Why the frozen carrots? They have an unmistakable rubbery texture & flavor.
4 Stars
good flavor!

Fantastic slow-braised rich, complex flavors. Pasta al dente. Complete heaven, down to the shredded cheese...
3 Stars
I enjoyed the lamb but the entire dish was lacking in taste and satisfaction. Probably won't order again.

Disappointingly small portion, good amount of meat but barely any pasta. Flavours were good and easy to reheat.
