I served these with barbecued leg of lamb. I par-boiled the potatoes then gave them 15 - 20 mins in the oven on fan 180 and they were fabulous and crispy too. Will definitely be making these again and think I will add some garlic to the tomato purée mixture next time (as someone else here did) - I think that would work really well. Very yummy!

Really nice. I had to leave them in the oven for an extra 10 minutes though. Definetely will be making these again.

Not as tasty as I had hoped, really just potatoes in a fairly mild tomato sauce and took longer to cook than stated (even with pre-boiling the potatoes for 10min). Wouldn't make this again.

Made this to serve with Morrocan Meatballs, instead of couscous - and they were fab! Great combination!!

These were ok only. And as you need to bake them for more than an hour my usual roasties would have been preferable.

Very tasty! They took longer than 40 mins, but well worth it. Served it with a dollop of natural yoghurt and some finely chopped red peppers

As the lady above said, this is agreat companion to Chicken Cacciatore! I made this for my wife and son and added the Creamy baked onions as well. My wife was amazed at the result, clean plates all around. Thanks Good Food for another success!

these are delicious when they are finally cooked. Gas mark 4 is too low, had them in for near on an hour and still weren't crispy enough. after turning up the heat tho to gas mark 6 they were yummy.

Gorgeous! I par-boiled them first so they were really quite soft and crumbly, which resulted in yummy crunchy tatties which took just 10 mins to cook in oven! Served with homemade salmon fishcakes and sweetcorn....delish!
