    happygurl06's Note:

    This warming vegetable dish can be enjoyed as a meal or as a side. Play with the flavours and you can turn this in to a curry casserole (add curry powder instead of Italian herbs) or try Moroccan spices, Cajun spices or Hungarian spices... all delish! ------

      When you combine some of my favorite ingredients - fennel, potatoes and lentils - in an easy and healthy dish, you have one happy chef. Even better, the results were hearty and tasty. My half batch gave me three generous servings. The vegetables were all done right and worked well together. My one comment was that it was a little underseasoned. Perhaps a little more basil to complement the Italian herb blend would have added something without competing with the delicate flavor of the fennel. Thanks for a delicious meal prepared as part of RSC#9.

      This had potential, but I followed directions and the potatoes and fennel were more than just a tad underdone. I also used Italian seasoning as it was what I had on hand; it might have benefited from a more exotic spice mix. I only used 2 fennel bulbs myself. I recommend both roasting fennel for a longer period of time and also baking casserole for a longer time. BTW, I did note that 180 translated to 350 Fahrenheit, so I hope that wasn't the problem! Thanks and good luck!
