Ingredients

2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 large)
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon grated peeled gingerroot
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups cubed peeled butternut squash
2 cups diced carrot
1 cup diced peeled parsnip
1 cup diced peeled turnip
1 cup quartered mushrooms
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup diced onion
2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans vegetable broth
2 tablespoons chopped pecans

Preparation

Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, and bake at 375° for 50 minutes or until very tender. Let cool, and peel.

Combine sweet potatoes, molasses, gingerroot, salt, and pepper in a bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until smooth. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add squash and next 6 ingredients (squash through onion); sauté 8 minutes. Add broth; bring to a simmer, and cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Spoon squash mixture into a 3-quart casserole. Spread sweet potato mixture evenly over squash mixture. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes; sprinkle with pecans, and bake an additional 15 minutes.
