Italian Pot Roast

I have managed to put down my Cooking Light magazine for a night and pick up Southern Living. That’s where this delicious recipe came from. I made for friends for dinner last night and they loved it…or at least they SAID they did! Stuck with the traditional mashed potatoes and carrots for the sides. I  forgot (really, I did) to add tomato paste to the cooking liquid. I’m glad I did, though, because I think it would’ve made it too tomato-y. But maybe that’s why it’s called “Italian” pot roast.
