1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray shallow roasting pan or casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2 Rinse lamb and pat dry with paper towels. Rub with olive oil and season with garlic, salt and pepper. Place lamb in prepared pan. In a small bowl mix saffron in warm water, add spices and tomato sauce, stirring to incorporate.
3 Place tomato wedges around lamb, pour saffron mixture around and over lamb and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
4 Roast for 30 minutes at 450 degrees F. Add a little water if necessary to prevent dryness. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F, cover and continue cooking until you reach the desired doneness (medium-rare 130 to 140 degrees F or medium 140 to 150 degrees F).
5 Remove from oven and let rest for about 5 to 10 minutes. Carve and serve.
