Expert Tips

It's hard to beat the flavor of rosemary in this stew, but if you like basil, go ahead and use chopped fresh basil instead.

Warm Italian peasant bread and herb butter is a delicious combination with this one-dish stew. End the meal on a light note with vanilla frozen yogurt, cappuccino and chocolate-dipped biscotti.

Top this robust stew with shaved curls of Parmesan cheese and a sprinkling of chopped fresh rosemary leaves.
