French lamb chops with basil and young spinach leaves

I know it may not sound like a low fat diet meal, but I think it is. There is not a lot to eat in theses tasty french cut lamb chops, so it can't be very calorific, I guess...

For two persons:
8 lamb chops ( 400g)
One bunch of basil
Olive oil
100g of young spinach leaves
Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven at 250°c. Wash and cut the basil with scissors in a small bowl or a cup. Pour on olive oil to cover, salt and pepper, mix with a fork and let it rest. Put the rack of lamb in a pot ( glass or cast iron) fat on the top, pour on a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes on a high fire until the fat is crispy and colored, but the interior rosé and juicy. Wash the spanich , toss with half the basil/olive oil. Cut the lamb's rack in eight and serve hot with basil and olive oil on it and spanich on the side. My favorite cut of the lamb, very helpful when you improvise a dinner party with friends at the last minute.
