This is the second time I made this recipe (the first time I noted "Good" without a date). This time, I followed the recipe exactly, except that I did not have green onions on hand and omitted them. I baked the recipe about 20 min. longer than suggested. After cooling, I had a serving, with the following observations:<br/>Although barely tender, the potatoes would not meet with my family's taste.<br/>Some additional flavor was needed, and next time I would add oregano & basil at least to the middle tomato level.<br/>I did not put enough salt & pepper on each level, as I wasn't sure how much would be appropriate. I was more afraid of oversalting than undersalting, so in the end, I felt that more salt was needed.<br/>I have now put the whole dish back in the oven, covered with aluminum foil. I will leave it for an hour and see what happens.<br/>The rating of 5 is for me, although my family would give it a 4.<br/>I appreciate very much the use of weights for the veggies - a kitchen scale is a great utensil! I find it easier to weigh veggies than to calculate how many onions (for instance) make 1 cup.
Since this is a dish that was totally new to me & my taste buds, I wasn't sure what to expect! Did follow the recipe right down the line, though I did cut it in half & added some ripe olives! Was pleasantly surprised ~ It's a nice tasting dish, & definitely for the garlic lover! [Made & reviewed while in Greece on the Zaar World Tour 4]
