Dust off that old Bordeaux, Parmesan-crusted Rack of Lamb is the perfect dish for a special date night at home.
Nothing says “you are special” more than preparing a decadent Parmesan-crusted Rack of Lamb for your dinner date (except maybe Butter Poached Lobster). Rack of lamb is going to be pricey and you will need to stop by a quality meat market to procure the lamb. Ask your butcher to “French” the rack. That just means to trim the fatty parts around the bones.

|1/4 c||parmesan cheese|
