As Easter gets closer I thought I would post a few Lamb recipes. As a child my mother married my step father who was Greek/Italian when I was 5. We ate a lot of different kinds of foods given our different nationalities. We celebrated traditional Easter with Ham and then we had a second Easter and celebrated Greek Easter with Lamb. I love Lamb just about anyway it is cooked. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Super decadent and super delicious! This is a hearty feast fit for a king. Make sure you use the butcher's twine - it really holds the meat and stuffing together.
