Being short on time, I was unable to marinate the lamb overnight- in fact, I only marinated it for about 2-3 hours before putting it into the oven. I substituted Rosemary (sorry) with Oregano and Basil as I can't really taste the difference anyhow. Halfway through I added a tent, as my roast was starting to look very dry on top. Outcome was amazing- even though I hadn't let it marinate long enough, the meat was very tender. And since there's so much meat, it provided quite a bit of food to last several days- an absolute must for a student with little time on their hands. (The extra juices left in the roasting pan I scooped into a separate bowl to save as sauce, after removing the fat) Also, I put garlic into slits in the meat, and it turned out pretty well. Don't forget to crush the garlic cloves, it'll help diffuse the juices during the baking process.
