Italian lamb stew
4 pounds stewing lamb (from shoulder, neck, and leg), cubed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 ½ to 1 teaspoon crushed hot red pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
¼ teaspoon powdered sage
3 bay leaves
1 cup dry white wine
2 cups ripe peeled tomatoes, or canned peeled tomatoes

Place lamb in a large saucepan with oil, salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary, and sage. Over high heat, quickly brown for 2 minutes. Add bay leaves and wine and cook 5 minutes longer. Decrease heat, add tomatoes and simmer, covered for approximately 1 ½ hours, stirring occasionally.

If it becomes necessary, add small amounts of water to complete cooking, but bear in mind that lamb should cook at all times in a thick and savory sauce.
