Flavors were ok. Potatoes were mushy. (maybe I overcooked) Might try again and not cook as long.
This was delicious! We used boneless chicken breasts, they were beautifully moist and tender under the ragout. I would say that the rosemary is essential in this dish. I also threw in a bit of salsa because I didn't have many grape tomatoes. A definite keeper, thanks Barb!
