Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Can substitute water and boullion for chicken stock, and prosciutto and bacon for serrano ham.

    This was a lovely way to serve new spring vegetables. I cooked them in the broth only until tender-crisp and served them with just a drizzle of the flavourful wine sauce.
