Yield:
10 to 12 servings

Ingredients
  • 6 pound boned leg of lamb
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Locatelli (Pecorino Romano)
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Pat dry the lamb and season it with salt and pepper.

In a skillet set over moderate heat, cook the bread crumbs in the oil until golden brown, transfer to a bowl, and add the garlic, cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper.

Spread the bread-crumb mixture on the cut side of the lamb, roll to enclose, and tie with string.

Arrange the lamb on a rack in a baking pan, add about 1-inch of water to the pan, and roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the meat is medium rare. Let it stand for 10 minutes before carving.
