Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • It's hard to beat the flavor of rosemary in this stew, but if you like basil, go ahead and use chopped fresh basil instead.
  • Warm Italian peasant bread and herb butter is a delicious combination with this one-dish stew. End the meal on a light note with vanilla frozen yogurt, cappuccino and chocolate-dipped biscotti.
  • Top this robust stew with shaved curls of Parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of chopped fresh rosemary leaves.
