Made this a few years ago from one of my favorite diet cook books, and I remember it being really good; if I post it on here, I will remember it as a dish for when I am looking to see what to cook for dinner one night (or weekend, as it takes a while to cook). The "Italian" in the pot roast refers to the herbs used.
