Herbs rack of lamb with white bean and rosemary ragout.

Trying to add a new flavor during the week is rather challenging but not impossible. As you may have noticed we are not beans eaters in our family, and as the lamb was on the dinner menu, I wanted to prepare something new.

Browsing thru some old French cookbooks, I often saw lamb prepared with beans. Why not give it a try?

The white bean recipe last night was a combination of three recipe books and was created as I was looking at the ingredients that I had on hand and did not feel like going to the store to just purchase one ingredient.

Kind of fun to see what you can get away with and still have a delicious easy meal preparation.

Great family dish, enjoyed by all, and has no leftovers.
