      this was a great recipe, well thought out, easy and impressive. I actually made this outdoors on the grill (started the leg directly on the grill and finished in a heavy pan) so flavorful! the herbs and pancetta really compliment the lamb very well. Thank you for sharing... this will be our Easter Lamb recipe for years to come!
