This is a little different than the stews I could find on Zaar. It is by Philomena Corradeno's Chopping Block with a few small changes by me. Serve with a green salad and some crusty bread to sop up the sauce. If you wish you may thicken the sauce by adding 2 tsp cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water for the final 15 minutes of cooking. I like mine with out the thickening.

I never have added cheese to a stew and found that it added another layer of succulence to this dish. I cooked using an Australian Chardonnay and chicken broth. The lamb, locally and humanely raised, was so tender and delicious. I rehydrated Chanterelles which was a different twist for the mushroom ingredient but wished I had fresh. Overall, a very easy recipe that made a spectacular meal for dinner!

I used 6 cups of chicken broth. This recipe was wonderful. Bob and I both loved it. Bob went back for seconds. I will make this again.

It really brought out the flavor of the lamb! I used white wine and chicken broth. I think the parmesan cheese is really important to the flavor. I had a little less lamb than called for but used lots of mushrooms to add a little more to the meal. Yum!
