This week we share Phil’s recipe for easy roast lamb with tomatoes, peppers, courgettes and tagliatelle.

Serves 6

Preparation time:20 minutes
Cooking time:2 hours in total


    • 1kg leg of British lamb, boned and laid flat
    • 4 sprigs of rosemary
    • 4 cloves garlic, finely sliced
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • Salt
    • Pepper
    • 2 red peppers, de-seeded and chopped into 3cm pieces
    • 2 yellow peppers, de-seeded and chopped into 3cm pieces
    • 2 medium courgettes, cut into 2cm pieces
    • 6 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 small onions, roughly chopped
    • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 6 plum tomatoes cut into quarters, seeds removed
    • 4 tbsp roughly chopped fresh basil
    • 350g cooked tagliatelle
    • 50g salted butter
    • Black pepper


    1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6.
    2. Puncture the lamb all over with a small sharp knife, then break off 2cm pieces of rosemary and garlic into the puncture holes. Sit the leg onto scrunched up foil in a roasting tin then place in the oven and cook for 1 and ½ hours.
    3. After 1 and ½ hours has passed remove the lamb from the oven, wrap in foil and leave to rest for 40 minutes. This will give you a perfectly cooked, pink leg of lamb.
    4. Meanwhile bring a large pan of water to the boil, add plenty of salt and then re-boil. One by one place all the vegetables into the pan and re-boil for 1 minute, then refresh in cold water to remove the heat. Drain the vegetables thoroughly into a colander and leave to rest.
    5. Next heat olive oil in a frying pan, add the onions and garlic and cook for 3 minutes until they take a little colour, before adding the rest of the cooked vegetables and cooking for 10-15 minutes.
    6. Finally add more olive oil, fresh tomatoes and basil and just warm through.
    7. Serve with the sliced leg of lamb and cooked tagliatelle – follow cooking instructions on pack.
