The refrigerator light goes on...

While this recipe is cooking your house will fill up with the lovely aroma of rosemary. Great hot or cold, take this dish to your next potluck: easy, colorful and delicious.

This recipe seems deceptively simple and those are the best dishes usually. The carrots and parsnips speak for themselves with great sweet flavors of the veggies that is made better with a bit of rosemary and the slight caramelization of roasting.

The instructions call for cutting the veggies into rounds, but if you have smaller carrots and parsnips or those that are fat at one end and tapered at the other, cut full rounds at the tapered end and half or quarter rounds depending on the size at the base. The goal is to have your cut carrots and parsnips all about the same size.
