Recipe by cudachaser

Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry. This dish was inspired by the wonderful savory D’agneaux et aubergine served in a tangine at Chez Bebert in Paris. I replaced the tangine with Reynolds Wrap® Foil to slowly cook the lamb to delectable and savory tender goodness. A crowd pleaser and house-hold favorite.
