    We loved the broccolini! We normally eat regular broccoli florets but this was a really good change. I added the crushed red pepper and it was just right amount! This one is a keeper for our veggie options!

    I followed the recipe exactly. It's not my favorite way to roast sweet potatoes but I did like the broccolini. I will probably stick with my other recipes for roasting sweet potatoes but I will use crushed red pepper for the next time that I prepare broccolini.

    This was very good. I used what I had on hand such as potatoes and frozen broccoli. I let the broccoli thaw prior to cooking. Now I am not a fan of broccoli but this was very good! Potatoes were really crispy! Will definatly fix this again!

    Great side dish recipe! I used a food processor to get even slices of sweet potato in ~2 minutes vs. chopping myself and followed this recipe exactly as written minus the thyme (just forgot to add; wouldn't say it was needed). While it takes ~30-40 minutes for total time on this side dish (including pre-heat of oven & prep along with cook time), I really enjoyed it and wouldn't hesitate to make again. The potatoes came out fully cooked and crisp and the broccolini was crisp tender; follow cook times exactly and you shouldn't be disappointed. The crushed red pepper gives it just the right amount of kick to elevate this recipe outside the "boring." Served with C.L.'s Pan Seared Steak with Horseradish-Chive Butter for a great meal. A keeper; enjoy!
