I think the potatoes need to be pre-cooked for this recipe. After cooking 2 hours, they were cooked through, but not nice and soft, they were still kind of hard, like for potato salad (and they were peeled and cut in half). I also seasoned each layer and ingredient - not just the meat.
After 2 hours in the oven the ingredients were still uncooked! A very poor recipe and one to avoid.The five star review is unbelieveable.
Okay - this is definitely 5 stars!! Made this for dinner tonight and it was wonderful. The veal was tender, the vegetables were tender but not mushy ( I was worried about the zucchini baking for 1 hour) and the flavors were excellent. Even DD said it was very good, which is rare for her! Preparation was quick and I loved the one-dish cooking. I will add this to the Keeper cookbook! Thanks Diva. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
