Any night that the family is all together is a special night but Sunday dinners are the day I like to really make something big and delicious.  This dinner falls into that category.  I served this hearty main dish with a side of my favorite mashed potatoes and used the rosemary sauce as a gravy.  I added a small salad and a crusty fresh bread to round it all out.
