Lamb Chops Calabria Style with Tomatoes, Peppers, and Olives

According to legendary Italian cookbook author Marcella Hazan, "This is a recipe that starts out as two before becoming one. The chops and the sauce…are cooked separately. Small rib chops should be cooked very briefly to a moist, flaming pink. Cook them too long, and they will turn gray and lose all their juice."
