Yummy, used lemon juice instead of vinegar and worked a treat.

Deliciously tasty! So easy to do and more filling than it looks. Will definitely cook this again and maybe add some more veg to the pot, possibly some squash.

I love this recipe, it couldn't be easier and is so flavourful! You can change the herbs you use to switch things up. I sometimes use tarragon or thyme instead of basil.

I made this for dinner as a treat and made the amount for 2 people but ate it all myself!
I seem to be a roasting fanatic these days, so it's nice to add another simple recipe to my folder.
Tasted delicious and not much washing up!

A really delicious meal. I loved how light and healthy this was, with beautiful natural flavours. I added whole peeled shallots, but I think next time (I'll definitely be doing this again!) I'd try adding garlic and lemon wedges. Squash some of the tomatoes a bit when you take it out of the oven to use as sauce... this is so good.

Nice but more seasoning is needed as in my opinion the recipe was too bland as it is.

Wonderful recipe. Good suggestion to top with a dollop of lemon mayo (i used Tartar thinned with juice of half a lime). Thanks.

This has become a regular in our house - so quick (and all in one dish) and easy but the flavours go together really well. Was doubtful about the basil but really lifts the dish.

This could become a Saturday evening favourite for us,quick, easy and delicious, but would use less oil next time and add the asparagus nearer the end

Super tasty recipe and just so so easy to impress when you have a few friends around. We added fennel to the the dish which worked really well. A great starter to go with this is the baked red pepper with baby tomatoes and anchovies with a dresed rocket salad. Great results for almost no effort. Got to be a winner!

I made it without the potatoes so as to cut down on the carbohydrates, but really liked it. Supereasy and fast!
