I thought I followed the directions, but I must have cut the vegetables too large, because this took WAY longer than 20 minutes. By time the carrots and parsnips were soft, the squash had disintigrated. My dish therefore looked nothing like the photo. The taste was okay, but it was definitely lacking complexity. I served the ragout over baked polenta. Some good quality parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top of the ragout helped a lot. I don't think I'll make this one again.
