    : Prepare the Ingredients
    Lamb: Get the lamb out of the fridge at least 15 minutes before cooking.
    - Walnuts: chop.
    Wash and dry the vegetables prior to chopping (as required):
    - Green French Beans: trim ends
    - Sun dried tomatoes: cut into large dices
    - Basil Leaves: chop ; - Flat Leaf Parsley: chop
    - Garlic: peel and mince.
    : Boiling
    Start boiling some water in a pot. You will need approximately 4 litres of water from every 200g of dry pasta. When the water comes to a rolling boil, add some salt and then add the pasta. It should cook in 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on it. Drain and keep aside.

    Green French Beans:
    Just like the pasta, bring some water to a rolling boil. Add some salt and then cook the green beans for about 3-4 minutes or until you think they’re cooked enough. Drain out the water and keep the beans aside.
    : Grill the Lamb Steaks, Plate and Serve
    Heat a pan until you see a little smoke. Add cooking oil to it. Pat the lamb dry, and season it with mixed dried herbs, salt and pepper and carefully place it in the pan. Sear the lamb for about a minute and turn it over. Turn the lamb over again after a minute, essentially you're trying to replicate the effect of a spit roast. Once the lamb is cooked to your liking : 4 minutes for medium, set it aside and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

    In the same pan, heat a little more oil then add in the garlic. Sauté for a minute, turn off the heat and then toss in the pasta. Toss the pasta well so it picks up the flavour of the garlic. Then toss in the green beans, sun dried tomatoes, basil leaves, walnuts and black olives. Lightly dress with the extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well.

    Plate and Serve:
    To serve, on a plate first place the pasta, followed by the tossed green beans mixture, then crumbled feta and finally the lamb on the top. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
