    • 1 cup oil base Italian salad dressing
    • 6 cloves garlic, divided

    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 rolled boneless lamb shoulder, or leg roast (about 3.5 lb)*
    • 2 Tbsp butter
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 3 fresh pimentos, cut into thin strips (about 3 cups)

    1. Place salad dressing, 3 garlic cloves, 1 Tbsp. paprika and bay leaf in a blender container; cover. Blend on high speed 2 minutes Pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Add lamb; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat lamb with the dressing mixture. Refrigerate at least 12 hours.
    2. Preheat oven to 325° F. Remove lamb from marinade, reserving the marinade in a small saucepan. Place lamb, fat-side up, on rack of a roasting pan; set aside. Bring marinade to a boil; cook 1 minute Remove from heat. Brush onto lamb.
    3. Bake lamb 2 hours or until done (160° F.), brushing occasionally with the cooked marinade. Meanwhile, mince remaining 3 garlic cloves; set aside. Melt butter in a medium size skillet over medium heat. Add oil, garlic, remaining 1 Tbsp. paprika and pimientos; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in parsley. Place lamb on a serving plate; drizzle with the butter mixture.
