We had a dinner party the other night and I needed to have something easy to put together that wasn’t going to be a major stress.  Not sure about you but entertaining people – especially when you’ve made a bit of a big deal about how your eating “real food” and cooking a lot – is so far for me always a tad nerve wracking.  Having said that since doing this dish I think I would more often than not just go for a simple roast of some description.  It’s just the easiest thing to put everything in the oven together and then add some other fresh vegetables at the end.  But if you are keen to try this dish its pretty simple and very tasty:
