This looked like a great recipe. I had two problems: I used half the cayenne with 3/4# lamb and it was still to hot, even though we like "picante." Then the ccoking times were too short to either soften the tomatoes or to reheat the stuffing which cooled quickly ans the ricotta and carrot were added. I will try again with some adjustments.
