  • There’s something about asparagus which makes me think I want lamb and vice versa!
  • Easter is the ideal time to make lamb because so many spring veggies are ready
  • Roast some  veggies right in the pan!  Think cherry tomatoes, asparagus, tender young zucchini and radishes.  It is easy to make this a one pan sheet pan dinner!
  •  Pure comfort food when you add pureed cauliflower (see my cauli mash recipe )
  • For guests, make a greek cauliflower rice dish with parsley, peppermint and lemon

With this recipe, I roasted asparagus right in the sheet pan with the lamb racks.  And I used lemon, rosemary, garlic, thyme and olive oil on the lamb.
