good way to serve root vegetables. after 50 minutes of cooking, vegetables were a little too cooked for my taste. i think next time i will decrease the boiling time and foil-wrapped time and increase the open roasting time - the marsala needed a little more time to glaze over.
Marsala-Glazed Winter Vegetables
Marsala wine imparts a rich caramel flavor to the vegetables, but you can also use dry sherry. Parboil the vegetables before roasting to soften them so they'll better absorb the flavors of the seasonings. For the best flavor, use freshly grated nutmeg instead of bottled ground.
