  • Cut deep slits on the top of leg of lamb every 3 to 4 inches; push slices of garlic down into the slits. Generously season with salt and pepper. Place lamb on a roasting pan; arrange several sprigs of fresh rosemary under and on top of the lamb.

  • Roast in the preheated oven for 1 3/4 to 2 hours, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the lamb reads at least 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) for medium-rare to medium doneness.

  • Cover lamb with aluminum foil and let rest for at least 10 minutes before carving.
