Herb Roasted Lamb with Sauces’n Love Mint Pesto



  • 3 racks of lamb, trimmed
  • 2 jars Sauces’n Love Mint Pesto
  • 2 tablespoons thyme plus 12 whole sprigs thyme
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary leaves plus 12 whole sprigs rosemary
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper

  • 1/4 cup flat leaf parsely leaves



  1. Season the lamb with thyme, rosemary, garlic and black pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  2. Take the lamb out of the refrigerator 1 hour before cooking to bring it to room temperature.
  3. After 30 minutes, season the lamb generously on all sides with salt. Reserve the garlic and herb sprigs.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325.
  5. Preheat the grill to medium or a large saute pan over medium high heat.
  6. Sear the lamb on all sides until the racks are brown and caramelized, but do not cook through.
  7. Transfer the seared lamb to a roasting rack set in a roasting pan.
  8. Top with the seared herbs, one jar of Sauces’n Love Mint Pesto and reserved garlic.
  9. Roast in the oven 20 to 25 minutes, until the lamb is medium rare; a meat thermometer inserted into the center of the eye will register 120.
  10. Let the lamb rest 8 minutes.
  11. Serve Mint pesto as a condiment on the side to top.
