  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Place lamb in a roasting pan. Add mashed tomatoes, onion, olive oil, oregano, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Combine and make sure lamb is well coated. Cover pan with a lid or aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for about 3 hours. Remove from the oven and remove aluminum foil; leave oven on.
  4. Add water and orzo directly to the roasting pan. Return to the hot oven and bake until pasta is cooked and very little liquid remains, 30 minutes to 1 hour. Add feta cheese and mix until melted and combined.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • The orzo is always high in demand in our house. A second pound wouldn't go amiss if you've a big enough pan for it. Of course, also double the feta and water, then.
  • As with all roasting recipes, you can use a lower temperature and cook longer. Three hours is the minimum I've used. You could also use 6 to 10 hours at 300 degrees F for a very tender result.
