Love an easy recipe. I put it in and left for karate, when I came back dinner was done!

I just read the info regarding the TT trick. I do have to have the leave house so perhaps I’ll just do it when I’m home. Thanks

Could I do this without the tea towel? I often do these recipes in a pot in the oven.
