This is the type of dish you prepare the night before by marinating it overnight and finish it in the oven the following day. It makes it very easy to do during a busy work week.
This is a Nigella recipe that I found on a magazine. The house smells really good while the dish is in the oven.
This is also one of those recipes where you can be really loose when it comes to the ingredient list. Use dry mustard if you don't have Dijon, whatever herbs you prefer or have in hand will do, add more onions if you like them, remove garlic if you don't like it, etc. I normally make it with oregano but sage, rosemary or parsley works well too.
