"This is a nice side dish I like to serve with a roast. The aroma of the rosemary just fills the entire house, mmmmmmm, so nice. You can change up the root vegetables; this is simply my favourite combination. Here is a list of root vegetables I have used for this recipe; turnip, beets, parsnips, squash, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes. If using squash, put it in about 15 minutes after the other vegetables as it cooks faster, if using turnip, put the turnip in 15 minutes ahead of time as it takes longer to cook. "

WOW! These were very tasty! Since my rosemary plant looked pitiful, I wound up using a combo of dried rosemary and thyme. I also seasoned them with garlic salt. I also didn't have any aluminum foil so I used a stainless steel lid to my skillet. Such a great combo of flavors!
