Herb Rubbed Tuscan Pork Roast

A handful of ingredients are all you need for this memorable entree. Treated to an herbed rub the night before, the pork needs little prep work before your dinner party. "I've had so many compliments on how moist this roast is," says Diane Toomey of Methuen, Massachusetts.

    This is absolutely delicious and so easy to make. Would give it more stars if there were more stars to give.

    This was a very flavorful recipe, and quite honestly, very easy. The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that I found it a touch on the salty side. Next time I will make adjustments for that.
