Originally, lamb stew was a dish for poor people, but Eamonn's version is one you will relish anytime you are looking for a comforting, filling meal. He recommends serving it with string beans flavored with strips of smoked bacon.

Michael Gelman, ever on his toes, was holding up a sign off-camera during the segment that said, "Be careful not to eat the toothpicks." When it was Kathie Lee's turn to sample the dish, she brought the sign out onto the set to show the audience.... Ethel recommends serving this savory dish on a cold, raw evening. Also serve the remaining "boiled cabbage" along with the stuffed cabbage rolls so that there is no waste.....
* Exported from MasterCook * Gnocchi all'Ortolana (Potato Dumplings w/ a Garden Sauce) Recipe By : Entertaining with Regis & Kathie Lee Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00 Categories : Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -------- ------------ -------------------------------- ---Gnocchi--- 6 large Idaho potatoes -- unpeeled 2 tablespoons salt -- + 1 teaspoon 2 large eggs -- lightly beaten 1 dash freshly ground white pepper 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour -- (may need up to 4) ---Fresh Vegetable Sauce--- 1 cup unsalted butter -- cut into 1/2" pieces 4 fresh sage leaves 1 1/2 cups chicken stock 1/2 cup fresh peas, steamed until just tender 1/2 cup mixed beans and chickpeas -- cooked 1/2 cup carrots, steamed until just tender -- finely diced 1/2 cup zucchini -- finely diced 1/2 cup fava beans -- steamed 1/4 cup lentils -- cooked salt and pepper -- to taste 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes freshly grated parmesan cheese -- if desired TO MAKE THE GNOCCHI: In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes with enough water to cover them. Bring the water to a boil and continue boiling for about 40 minutes, or until the potatoes "give" easily when pierced with a fork. Drain the potatoes and let cool. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel them and pass them through a ricer or press them through a colander. Spread the riced potatoes loosely on a baking sheet so that as much surface as possible is exposed to the air. Cool the potatoes completely. In a large saucepot, bring 6 quarts of water and 2 tablespoons of the salt to a boil. Meanwhile, on a cool, preferably marble work surface, gather the cold riced potatoes into a mound, forming a well in the center. In a small bowl, stir together the eggs, remaining salt and the white pepper. Pour the mixture into the well. Work the potatoes and eggs together with both hands, gradually adding 2 to 3 cups of the flour, scraping up the dough from the work surface with a knife as often as necessary. Dust the dough, your hands, and the work surface lightly with flour, and cut the dough into 6 equal parts. Continue to dust the dough, your hands and the surface as long as the dough feels sticky. Using both hands, roll each piece of dough into a rope about 1/2" thick. Cut the rope at 1/2" intervals. Indent each dumpling with your thumb, or use the tines of a fork to produce a ribbed effect. A few at a time, drop the gnocchi into the boiling water, stirring gently and continuously with a wooden spoon. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they rise to the surface. Using a slotted spoon, remove the gnocchi from the water and transfer them to a warm platter, adding a little sauce, once you have it prepared. Continue cooking the gnocchi in batches until they are all cooked. TO MAKE THE SAUCE: In a large skillet, heat the butter and sage over low heat. Add the stock and the vegetables and season with the salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Let simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Add the cooked gnocchi, turning them gently with a wooden spoon for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they are coated with the sauce and heated through. Transfer the sauced gnocchi to serving plates and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve immediately. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - NOTES : May also use your favorite pasta sauce with these dumplings as a nice change of pace from regular pasta.
