I made this last night and it was really delicous, especially as I sourced the tomaotes and basil from my garden. Simple, but tasty. It's also easy, but benefits from a little planning so that lamb can cook slowly. This is a generous serve for 2 - quantities can easily be increased. I used low fat feta and spray oil to reduce calories.
