I served this dish for a large Christmas gathering a few years ago to rave reviews. I forgot about it until this year, when flipping through my cookbook looking for something else. I realized I had all the ingredients on hand and thought I'd add it to the buffet table. It was a hit again, and my s-i-law called me that night for the recipe so she could serve it to her in-laws. Beautiful colors, wonderful flavor, and very easy to throw together. I followed the recipe exactly. We served it with a Prime Rib Roast, mashed potatoes, green beans and a salad. It looked beautiful on the table sever in a crystal bowl. I made 2pounds of carrots, had 11 adults, 4 teens and 5 little ones. There wan't a morsel left. Next time I might make 3 pounds for this crowd.
