Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400°F.
Pierce lamb in several places with sharp knife. Stuff rosemary and 8 garlic cloves into slits in lamb; place in large roasting pan.
Combine vegetables and remaining garlic in large bowl. Whisk dressing, mustard and oil until blended. Pour half the dressing mixture over vegetables; toss to evenly coat. Brush remaining dressing mixture onto lamb; sprinkle with pepper.
Remove potatoes from vegetable mixture; place, cut sides down, around lamb in roasting pan. Spread remaining vegetables onto rimmed baking sheet sprayed cooking spray.
Bake lamb and potatoes 50 min., reducing oven temperature to 350°F after 30 min. Add pan of vegetables to oven. Bake 40 min. or until lamb is done (160ºF) and vegetables are tender.
Sprinkle baked vegetables with 1 pkg. (4 oz.) ATHENOS Traditional Crumbled Feta Cheese before serving.
How to Smash the Garlic Cloves
To easily smash the garlic, place cloves, 1 at a time, on cutting board. Lay chef’s knife across the clove, then firmly press down on side of knife blade to smash the clove, being careful to avoid blade of knife. The crushed garlic falls apart and each clove breaks into 3 or more pieces.
For added color, substitute a yellow squash for one of the zucchini.
For best results, let the meat and vegetables stand, covered, 15 min. before serving.
Prepare using KRAFT Greek Vinaigrette Dressing.
