    Absolutely spectacular rack of lamb from the food addicts. This dish is a great date night recipe. I served it over some risotto, and it was mouth watering...

      DH and I made this lovely rack of lamb recipe for dinner last night. The sauce was perfect and did not overpower the lamb, which sometimes happens in lamb recipes with sauce. This was a great balance and the tender lamb flavor really came through. This takes a bit of prep as you have to let the lamb sit overnight (which we did). However, the results are worth the wait. We made no modifications to the recipe. Thanks for posting!
