The oven roasting really enhances the flavor of the vegetables. We loved it and I will definitely make it again. Can't wait to have the leftovers tonight.

This was very easy to make, and tasted very good. A great way to use up carrots and sweet potatoes from in the fridge! Took it to a pot lock dinner and it was well received.
