Deliciousness for a week or more, Member anastasiafrank

This is my very first recipe review. I had to write because this is simply outstanding. The kitchen smells like heaven while it's cooking and whoever you're cooking for will love you forever for making so much goodness out of simple veggies. We used Emeril's veggie stock which was delicious and ended up putting a bit more wine and stock into it after it had baked the second 45 minutes. We have coldish oven so cooked it at 375 for an hour after initial 30 minutes. I will be making this as a staple for winter meals and freezing portions for healthy snacks. Good with quinoa or brown rice. Could be good with chickpeas if you want to include protein, and be generous with your thyme if you like the flavor. And we used the Chardonnay we had in the fridge, so that works great.
