A note about serious food allergies

Harmony works its wonders in more than just music. This meal, for instance, is hitting all the high notes without humming a bar. Tender, luxurious lamb chops are served with a succulent cherry-demi sauce, combine rich and sweet for a chorus of flavor. Butternut squash, dusted with rosemary, provides a tasty baseline. And killing it on the high notes is a spinach gratin, resplendent with ricotta and Parmesan. Put this all together, and you've got a surefire chart-topper on your hands.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Wilt Spinach

    Stem and mince rosemary. Pat lamb chops dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add spinach to hot pan and stir occasionally until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Transfer spinach to a mixing bowl. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Gratin

    Add ricotta, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to bowl with spinach. Stir to combine. Transfer ricotta-spinach mixture to prepared casserole dish. Top with Parmesan and panko and drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil.

  3. 3

    Cook the Lamb and Gratin

    Return pan used to wilt spinach to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add lamb chops to hot pan and sear until browned, 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer seared lamb to one half of prepared baking sheet. Place casserole dish with gratin on other half. Roast in hot oven until gratin is browned and lamb reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-12 minutes. Rest cooked lamb at least 3 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve. While lamb roasts, cook squash.

  4. 4

    Cook the Squash
