What I love about this dish is how versatile it is. It goes well with a fancy main dish or it can be served up with some grilled chicken drumsticks. it also comes from Bon Appetit magazine. I hope you enjoy it.

I made these this morning to have for lunch, but cooked them a little longer than suggested. My husband loved them! He doesn't care for balsamic vinegar, so we left it out. Said they taste like sweet potato fries! Said this is the only way he will eat carrots from now on! I agree!

It is unusual for me to rate a 5 on a veggie recipe but this one is outstanding. It is flavorful, easy to prepare and compliments your other courses well. I served with grilled steak and twice baked potatoes and cherry pie for dessert. We loved them and will make them often. Thanks for posting such a tasty recipe
