Made for my 3 chefs June 2012. I served this with Braised Lamb Ragu With Penne and some gremolata and this all went together amazingly. I lost track of how long I left the potatos in the oven, but they came out smelling and tasting great.

Thank you so much for sharing, this was a real pleasure. Also, didn't have tomato sauce so used approx half a cup of tomato paste for this.
