DIRECTIONS

  • Put a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Arrange tomatoes in a 17 1/2-by-12 inch roasting pan and place lamb on top (if using canned tomatoes, coarsely chop them and pour the juice over them). Arrange garlic around lamb. Lay rosemary sprigs on lamb (or sprinkle dried rosemary), then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil.
  • Roast lamb for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue roasting lamb, basting garlic with remaining 2 tablespoons oil every 20 minutes to keep it from drying out, until thermometer inserted into thickest part of lamb (without touching bone) reas 135 degrees for medium-rare, 1 3/4 to 1 1/2 hours more.
  • Transfer lamb to a cutting board and let stand, loosely covered with foil, for 20-30 minutes. Stir tomato mixture and transfer to a sauceboat.
  • Carve lamb and serve with tomato mixture and roasted garlic.
