Cut about 1 kilo of lamb, still with the bone, into pieces and fry them lightly in a baking tray with some tablespoons of oil and 1 sliced onion.

When fried, moisten it with white dry wine and put it in a hot oven.

After about half an hour, add 500 gms. of fresh shelled peas, salt, pepper, and cover the lot with a sheet of grease-proof paper.

Break 3 eggs into a bowl, add 1 handful of chopped parsley and grated "pecorino" cheese and some pepper to them and, when the lamb is done, add this mixture to it without stirring and put the lot again in the oven to bake for 3 minutes.

Serve hot.

A good accompaniment is the "Negramaro" wine, a red dry ripe wine, at 18° C.
