This looks lovely, mainly because the vegetables are so colourful. The flavours are good too. I followed the recipe with the addition of some little carrots which needed eating (!)

Easy way to do lamb cutlets and it's lovely with the roast veggies. I just plonked my lamb on top of the vegetables, rather than pushing them to one side...
