Place the lamb cutlets on top of the vegetables. Scatter with pitted Greek olives and return to the oven.  Cook for 15-20 minutes, flipping the lamb halfway, until it is still pink.

My Heart took the marinade and heated it in a small sauce pan, added in a little more red wine and a cornstarch / water mixture to thicken.  Remember that the raw lamb was in the marinade and must be cooked thoroughly before serving.  This meal was packed with flavor and I wouldn’t change a thing.  Destined to be a favorite.
