    Part boil the potatoes. Cut the lamb into 5cm chunks. Cut the squash and courgette into large chunks. Quarter the tomatoes. Tip the lamb, potatoes, squash, courgette, tomatoes, garlic, artichokes, oil, salt and pepper into a large roasting tin and mix together with your hands until everything is glistening. Spread everything out in the tin.
