Maple Lamb With Lemon Pepper Pesto Pumpkin
5 (1)

A quick and easy restaurant quality meal. The lamb is glazed with a maple syrup based glaze, while the pumpkin is cooked in lemon pepper cream sauce and finished with dollops of pesto. This dish would probably be improved slightly with the addition of a side of vegetables such as beans or asparagus that had been stirred in the lamb and glaze juices before serving.
