How to make the Lamb Innards Soup:

Rinse the meat and slice them thinly. Make a battuto with parsley, carrots, celery, garlic and onion. Put the battuto in a saucepan (preferably a ceramic one) with oil and saute lightly for a few minutes.

Add the meats (except the liver) and brown over a low heat stirring frequently. Add the broth, stir and cook over a low heat for about 40 min.

About 5 min. before everything is ready, add the liver. Add salt to taste. Toast the slices of bread and place them into single bowls. Ladle zuppa over the slices of bread and serve.
