You could always roast half of them naked and the other half in foil and compare and contrast.  To be honest I've always roasted them in foil because that's how my Mother did it.  But I'll try them naked next time, there's nothing to lose.  I've had great results doing them in foil, they are steamy but the roasted aroma is undoubtedly there, the sweetness comes out, man I'm really craving some now.

Chicken Parmesan. Didn't have any mozzarella so I used a slice of smoked provolone.
@French Fries speaking of cassoulet, will we be seeing one from you in the stew challenge?
Lots of cooking is happening this weekend, will post pictures when I can! We're starting the weekend with a vegan stew and ending it as Mexican carnivores. Stay tuned!
So what's the difference between egg noodles and pasta that has egg in it?
