An authentic Italian recipe from our kitchen to yours. Buon Appetito!


- 24 lamb rib chops

- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

- 2 medium stems rosemary

- 2 lemons, cut into wedges

- Salt

- Pepper


1.  In a large bowl or tray, add the lamb, olive oil, rosemary, and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper. Mix all ingredients well. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

2.  When you are ready to cook the lamb chops, preheat a grill pan over high heat or pre-heat your grill.




3.  Place the lamb chops on the hot grill pan or grill and sear them for 2 - 3 minutes. Then flip each chop and grill it on the other side for another 2 - 3 minutes or longer depending on how well-done you prefer your meat.

4.  Serve grilled lamb chops immediately with lemon wedges.
