Preheat the oven to Gas mark 6, 200°C/400°F.

Remove the lamb from the marinade and transfer to a large non-stick roasting tin. Roast for 1 hour covered with foil, turning once. Remove the foil, return to the oven uncovered for the final 30 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the salad; put the pasta, tomatoes, peas and parsley in a large bowl.

In a small screw-topped jar with a lid mix all the vinaigrette ingredients together. Pour the mixture over the salad then toss gently.

Transfer the ribs to a large plate and serve with the salad.

Tip: For barbecue style ribs, coat the ribs in 150ml/¼ pint prepared barbecue sauce and cook according to the method instructions.
