An excellent recipe. I cut this recipe in 1/2 to serve 4 adults and 1 child. I would suggest watching the baking time. The veggies did not take an hour. I would check them at 45 minutes to see if the vegetables are ready to eat. I didn't have any fresh thyme so I sprinkled dried thyme on the veggies. The roasted vegetables were so colorful and everyone enjoyed them. This is a good way to get your kids to eat vegetables. My 6 year old granddaughter and my husband ate the squash without the usual what is that? My family liked everything except the green apple. The green apple was a bit mushy. Next time I will add a Honey Crisp apple and watch the baking time. I am thinking the apple would take about 15-20 minutes of baking. Read More

This was a great recipe. I did not use white sweet potoatoes (since I have never heard of them and couldn't find them). I made extra and used them in other recipes. Read More

These were very good. My son and I ate these for days without getting tired of them. The only thing I didn't like was that one of the vegetables (butternut squash I think) got very mushed and disintegrated. My son thought that was part of what made the dish so awesome. He's not particularly into root vegetables so I was glad he liked this so much. Oh I had a hard time finding a large enough dish to roast this in. It is very bulky! Read More

This is a huge recipe. I cut it in half and warmed the veggies in the microwave for a couple of minutes before baking. I also chopped the pieces closer to an inch and they were done in 30 minutes. The tartness of the granny Smith apples is a great contrast to the sweet potatoes! Read More

This is an awesome recipe for all! I had never heard of white sweet potatoes but was able to find them and they were sweet like the red sweet potatoes and added a surprise to the recipe as you did not know whether you were going to bite into a yukon gold potato or the white sweet potato. I followed the recipe and did not have a problem with any items being overcooked. I will definitely make this again and pass it on to my fellow cooks. Renae Read More

I followed this recipe to a t- except that I could not find white sweet potatoes so I used red potatoes. I did find the cooking time to be accurate; the directions say to cut everything into 1& 1/2 in. pieces-those are pretty big. The butternut squash did get softer sooner while the carrots were still pretty firm. I cooked all of the ingredients as directed and it cme out great! My family brothers sisters nieces and nephews really enjoyed this dish! Read More

Made this for the second time. I didn't have carrots or regular potatoes so doubled up on the squash and sweet pots. It was excellent again! Read More
