How to Chop an Onion
1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced).
2. Arrange the onion over the base of a large baking dish. Add the garlic, tomatoes and lemon. Pour over the wine, sprinkle with the dried oregano and season. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over a high heat. Add the oil. Season the chops to taste. Cook the chops, in batches for 5 minutes, until browned on both sides. Transfer lamb to the baking dish and roast for a further 30 minutes.
4. Remove tray from oven and stand, covered loosely, for 5 minutes.
5. Spoon risoni and rocket into serving dishes. Top with lamb, tomato mixture and sprinkle with parsley to serve.
Fresh Tip: To peel garlic easily, carefully press the clove firmly under the flat of your knife and the skin will come straight off.
