This is a lovely combination of winter vegetables, prepared in a simple and easy way without too much fuss. We love it with Roast Chicken, and it also goes very good with beef.

I combined this recipe with one of my own (couldn't find exactly what I was looking for) for Thanksgiving dinner this year. I used parsnips, yams, and butternut squash. The nutmeg is key. YUM!! Thanks for the concept. It turned out wonderful. Marsala is a great way to do fall veggies.
