      This was fantastic! The gravy was lovely and rich and the veggies complimented the lamb perfectly. The only differnce I may make in future is to insert half an anchovy fillet into the slits with the rosemary and garlic. I love the taste of anchovies with lamb! Thanks so much for the recipe - I'm sorry icouldn't take a photo as my camera is broken!
