Preheat oven to 400°.

To prepare salad, combine first 9 ingredients in a bowl; toss gently to coat. Set aside.

To prepare pancakes, combine parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and eggs in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add pasta; toss well to coat. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 cup pasta mixture; cook 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Repeat procedure twice with 2 teaspoons oil and remaining pasta mixture; keep warm.

To prepare the lamb, place mushrooms in a spice or coffee grinder, and process until finely ground. Combine 1 tablespoon ground mushrooms, sage, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, reserving the remaining ground mushrooms for another use. Rub lamb with mushroom mixture.
