  • Why do I like it?

This is a fairly easy recipe to prepare.  You can get the vegetables ready in advance, then while they are roasting, you can make the sauce.  It is delicious hot with the sauce or warm served over greens.  I used the sauce the following day on toast!  It is hearty enough for a main course or a side dish.  The pairing of the flavors works well and the creaminess of the sauce really compliments the texture of the vegetables.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

My mother made this for me and she followed the recipe as written.  She opted for sweet potato, however you can use butternut squash as well.  I omit the oil for roasting the veggies.  I swap the oil for water in the sauce.
