  5. Remove the roasting tray from the oven and turn the vegetables. Make space in the middle of the tray, add the lamb and return to the oven for a further 25 min.
  6. Remove the tray from the oven, cover with foil and set aside for 5–10 min to allow the lamb to rest. Slice into individual cutlets and serve with the ratatouille, garnished with herbs.
