My husband often volunteers to take meals to folks just home from the hospital or during family emergencies. Because so many people like carrots, I look for new ways to serve them. - Laurie Diggins West Chester, Pennsylvania

"What a great recipe! What I love about this is that the ingredients are typically those that we always have on hand. I doubled the recipe in its entirety for our family, and I used some of the small multi-colored sweet peppers (from Costco) vs a green pepper. I had some concerns about how prevalent the Dijon mustard flavor was in the sauce when I tasted it alone, but it melded wonderfully with the vegetables and the flavor really mellowed out. I let some of the vegetables get a bit charred, which we all love. This was a terrific side dish and it's a keeper. We'll definitely make it again."
