Marches Style Lamb Stew

Small pieces of lamb in a savory wine and tomato based sauce. Serve over papparadelle. This is a nice dish that can be made in advance and reheated to serve.
This recipe is simple and straightforward to make if the lamb is trimmed and cubed in advance. Add extra time if it is not.
