  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly coat a 9 by 13-inch baking pan with canola oil spray.

  4. In a large saucepan, brown lamb in 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Drain fat and remove lamb from pan. Sauté 2nd onion and garlic with remaining olive oil until translucent. Add cooked lamb, black pepper and allspice. Sauté briefly. Add tomatoes and continue to simmer for 5 minutes.
