Hints and tips

• This dish can be made up to two days ahead. Store, covered, in refrigerator or freeze for up to two months. Remove lamb from bones if freezing as it will save on space. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
• Try substituting rosemary for thyme or sage for a change.
• Steamed rice or creamy polenta would also go well with this dish.
