Prepare Ahead

Prepare ahead the lamb can be prepared and stuffed with the rosemary leaves, ready for roasting, a few hours in advance of cooking.


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). With a small, sharp knife, make several deep cuts into the skin surface of the lamb. Push a few rosemary leaves into each cut. Place the lamb in a roasting tin, brush with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 1 hour.

  2. 2

    Mix the remaining rosemary with the garlic, tomatoes, and flageolets. Remove the lamb from the oven and spoon the tomato and bean mixture around it. Mix the tomato purée with the wine and pour over the lamb.

  3. 3

    Cover loosely with foil, then return to the oven for 30–40 minutes, or until the lamb is cooked but the juices are still slightly pink, stirring once. Allow the meat to rest for 10–15 minutes, loosely covered with foil, before carving.
