MY REVIEW

Good fall recipe. I thought that the sweet potatoes had a perfect texture, but found that my parsnips were slightly too firm. Will just cut into slightly smaller pieces next time. Used sun-dried tomato pesto because I could not find anything else.

It is easy to prepare, that is the good part. Totally lacking flavor, I added 1/2 cup Worchester sauce with about 1/2 an hour left to cook or it would have been almost tasteless. Parsnips were just right but the sweet potatoes turned to almost mush. Will not make this one again.
