This was absolutely delicious! I am drooling over this recipe. Definately a keeper and would highly recommend this. I will add this to the weekly rotation. I used whole carrots and just cut them in half. They roasted up very nicely. This was my first time cooking a roast of any sort and I was thrilled with how it turned out. The veggies were the best part of the meal. I've never had rutabaga before and it is fantastic. Yummy!!!
