      Lovely meal! I scaled the recipe back for 2 people but left the sauce measurements as written. I elected to puree the sauce but it would have been just fine in it's more rustic state. We also loved the beans and I intend to make those as a side dish frequently in the future. I'll make the lamb again as well but lamb is expensive here and the shanks are sometimes difficult to find. I wish that we had 1/2 star ratings because I'd give this a 4 1/2. The only reason to not give it 5 as written is that we thought the lamb lacked seasoning. I'd go heavier on the salt and pepper next time and maybe add some garlic salt and give it a good rub before browning. That is just our personal preference. Thanks for sharing!
