Garlic-Roasted Lamb with Oregano Pesto

Bill:  Matt, Jill and I made a great Easter Holiday meal.  Matt purchased a boneless leg of lamb at Knoche’s Old Fashioned Butcher Shop in Madison.  Matt made Oregano Pesto which used spinach and pistachios as the main ingredients.  An excellent combination.  Jill prepared the lamb for the oven by spreading the oregano pesto on the meat and then rolling it up and tying it.  She followed this recipe which included topping the lamb with more pesto and inserting garlic slivers into the meat.  Wow was it good!  My contribution was to make Oven Roasted Broccoli which is one of our favorite roasted vegetables.   We also had roasted red potatoes.  This was a great meal.  The lamb was so tender and tasty.  I’m looking forward to leftovers tonight for supper.

  1. That did turn out really well! I would make it again. Or, we could experiment with another lamb recipe next year.

  3. That looks like a fancy Easter dinner! Is that garlic or butter on the potatoes? The pesto would probably also be good with salmon or pasta.

  4. It was very good! We had some leftover pesto that was even good in my leftover salad!
