This is my kind of side dish for sure! Doubled the recipe since I really wanted to have some leftover, and used kettle roasted garlic oil rather than the olive oil and garlic... It was delicious!!! Topped it off with a little sprinkle of parmesan...

One of our family favorites. It is so easy and deceptively elegant.

Video indicates sauce with vegetables is coooked on the stove but receipe says to do it in the oven. Think stove top would be best.
