Please note that instructions call for adding basil while there is no basil listed in the ingredients. I added 2 Tbs fresh frozen basil. The prep was easy as pie. I did take the time to truss around the shanks w/ butcher;s twine so as to keep the meat intact. I also baked with the larger side of the bones down so that they would braise and the tops would brown. As another modification, I used veal broth as opposed to chicken (I like a darker sauce) All in all a delightful dining experience. I highly recommend this recipe

This was wonderful! The whole family ate it up, I've got almost no leftovers! I did reduce the sauce a bit in the skillet after removing from the oven. I served this with orzo lightly seasoned with the leftover juice from the can of tomatoes and a dash of lemon juice. Yummmmm! (Made for Newest Zaar Tag 08)
