This was a good side dish, but more due to the extra flavours I added. The recipe was a bit strange. I could not see how 1 large portabella can feed 6 people or more, so I used a package of smaller portabellinis. (All these veggies shrink considerably when roasting). The ingredients and instructions are very meagre: for example, surely most of the juice should be pressed from the tomato slices? I did do that. Did not have zucchinis, but used an equivalent veggie, a round South African baby gem squash which tastes just like zucchini. I made a dressing by whisking the wine, olive oil, black pepper and some mustard together, and then sprinkling over the veggies. Then I used a mixed-flavours seasoning salt liberally, as well as snipped rosemary over. In spite of greasing the oven tin the veggies still stuck, and was hard to get out in whole shapes. The baking time was a litle short. I apologise for not having red onions, so used a sweet onion. All in all, a very ordinary almost-baked-veggie dish -- pleasant, but the ingredients were by far not enough for the "6 - 8 servings" given. We were only 2 and we ate almost all of it.
I enjoyed this recipe very much. I increased the recipe by using the largest of each vegetable on the list and by using another garlic. I did not change the amount of dry white wine in the recipe and it turned out just fine.
