    Roasting vegetables adds so much flavor. I add onions and garlic to these veggies and serve them over pasta. A little balsamic vinegar adds more flavor too.  -  16 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was a great way to prepare several root veggies together. I did cut them up and marinate with EVOO and some other spices before putting them in the oven. My husband really enjoyed them. However, I only had to cook for 30 minutes@ 450.  -  18 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A little bland. I divided into 2 casserole dishes and ended up adding some red wine to the second which did help. Would definitely add something to this, such as onions and garlic as suggested by another reviewer.  -  21 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
