  1. Whisk the lemon zest and juice with 1 tbsp olive oil, the garlic, chopped rosemary leaves and seasoning. Add the lamb cutlets, toss to coat, then set aside to marinate for 30 mins if you have the time. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.

  2. Toss the potatoes with ½ tbsp olive oil and some seasoning. Tip into a large, shallow roasting dish and put in the oven for 15 mins.

  3. Remove the dish and shake to loosen the potatoes, then top with the peppers, lemon slices, rosemary sprigs and tomatoes. Drizzle with the remaining oil and some seasoning. Return to the oven for 10 mins.

  4. Place the lamb cutlets on top of the veg. Scatter over the olives and capers. Cook for a final 10-12 mins, turning the lamb halfway until it is just pink. Serve straight from the dish.

This is a solid recipe. I didn't have any peppers so just added some extra tomatoes, and added some sundried tomatoes also, which worked well. I only marinated my lamb for half an hour, I think a longer marinating time would add to the flavour. Also for the future, I think I would pan fry the lamb to get a little bit more colour and crispiness. Overall however this was easy and tasty.

SO GOOD. We had the lamb from my shepherdess sister, added about a dozen cherry plum tomatoes, and half of the potato was sweet potato, but then followed the recipe word for word and it was amazing.... Can't wait to do it again.

I made this as a veggie for non veggie friends. It was really simple to make and great for a dinner party as you can prep everything in advance and then it only takes 35 mins to cook and looks impressive. I will definitely make this again.

I have cooked this twice now. The first time, to the recipe, slicing the potatoes thinly, although I did use more potatoes than suggested. Although it was good, the potatoes were overcooked. On my second attempt, I just halved the new potatoes, which meant they were perfectly cooked and nicely crisp. I also added more tomatoes and served with steamed broccoli. Favourable comments from everyone

This was delicious, I used lamb steaks and cooked it all for about longer than the recipe. The whole family loved it!

We did this tonight and loved it. I didn't have any lamb cutlets so I used a piece of leg I had in the freezer (top end) I turned the heat down to 170 (fan) and sliced the potatoes into thicker chunks, put every thing , except capers and olives, in at once and cooked it for around an hour, turning the meat halfway through and then adding the capers and olives, lovely.
