Zuppa Osso Buco

This is another of my Rachael Ray conversions, and our family's all-time favorite meal. We serve it for special occasions as it's the most requested dinner in our repertoire. The gremolata makes the dish, so do not skip it and expect to still be impressed.

Put the following into crock-pot and set to LOW:

4 carrots, diced

4 ribs of celery with greens, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

2 Tbs. Olive oil

2 bay leaves

1 cup white wine

6 cups chicken broth

4 cups beef stock

Mix the meatballs and drop into crock pot:

1 lb. Ground turkey

1 large egg

1/3 cup crushed Italian croutons

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

black pepper, to taste

Cook for 4-6 hours. DO NOT STIR!

Add 1 bag of barely cooked egg noodles to soup and stir to mix well. Set crock-pot to warm and prepare Gremolata:

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 tin anchovies

¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

grated zest of 1 lemon

Chop all together until thoroughly minced and mixed. Put one teaspoon of gremolata on top of each bowl of soup. *Serve with Garlic Bread.
