Agnello con Sottaceti

Abruzzi is the region of Italy my grandmother was from, and I've been keen to try out some of the recipes she used to cook, however sadly, most of the family has forgotten them. So, I'm reading about regional Italian foods, and tonight I'm trying out what is meant to be an Abruzzi dish - agnello con sottaceti. This is an easy and pleasant dish!  Use as much or as little of ingredients as suits the numbers you are serving!

Heat olive oil in dutch oven. Brown diced lamb with minced garlic, then add white wine and rosemary, simmering until tender.  Next, add in some pickled vegetables and simmer for approximately 10 minutes more.  Serve with a nice loaf of crusty Italian bread.
