Delicious - I could not get fresh oregano so used a liberal sprinkling of dried oregano and served with steamed curly kale and crusty bread.

Delicious! Easy to put together and forget about in the oven til its done. The potatoes soaked up all the stock and wine but were still crispy on the outside, so just tasted divine!
