This was a wonderful, basic kind of recipe, just waiting for our own taste to be added. For those commenting previously.... as stated before by many others, you should always use a meat thermometer when roasting any meat. (however, I do understand that time is of essence when it comes to serving dinner on time) Ovens vary tremendously. My own oven can vary from day to day, depending on so many things. Kind of cooking vessel, thickness of meat, added ingredients. One recipe needs less time than stated, others need more. Some people said this recipe lacked flavour. Well, use more salt. If you use too little salt you'll not have the flavour you're looking for. Use more garlic. More pepper. Personally I swiped my finger across the meat half way through cooking and tasted it. I found it needed more salt, so at that point added more. Thank you for this recipe. I'd never thought of adding tomato sauce to roast lamb, but it sure gave the meat a new dimension and a great sauce. Oh, I'm editing to add that a good practice when using slivers of garlic is to sprinkle a little salt in the slits before pushing the garlic in. The flavour of the salt will not only be on the outside of the meat, but the inside as well.
