Spaghetti With Lamb, Feta & Artichokes

“This dish from the *Great Lamb* cookbook of the Australian Women's Weekly cookbook series whisks us away to indulge ourselves w/the rich flavors of the Mediterranean. *Enjoy* - I know I will. (Times have been estimated) .. *Edited to Add* -- This recipe was included for Greece in ZWT6 due to its strong Mediterranean influence + the use of feta cheese as a primary ingredient. :-)”
