    I was watching the Food Network and saw this..
    cut up all kinds of your fav veggies, put in roasting pan, put about 1cup ofwhite wine, 2 cups of chicken or beef stock over the top of veggies. then I put about half a small jar of Pesto all over the veggies, mixed everything well. It was awesome. I especially loved the mushrooms, and winter squashes. I cooked a boneless pork roast in a rack over the veggies. I did my own coating for my marmalade and horseradish sauce. Yum 3 pound roast took about 1 1/2 hours to cook. Excellent.

    Went to my in laws for Christmas dinner, I am very lucky in that I have great in laws. My MIL and her sister are Russian and amazing cooks - this past year the one sister was treated for cancer (in remission) and my FIL had heart surgery. So they've really tightened up their ship as far as what they eat/won't eat. We had a salad of baby greens, a whole roasted filet mignon and these amazing roasted root vegetables. I've been roasting vegetables a long time, but what they did was stupendous and very lean cuisine:

    3 cups squash cubed
    3 cups rutabaga cubed
    2 turnips cubed
    yellow onions rough cut
    celery stalks rough cut
    4 red potatoes, rough cut

    1/3 cup EVO and 1 pack Lipton's Onion Soup mix

    Toss all together and roast in a roasting pan about 45-55 minutes at 400 degrees. Really very good.

    Sometime try my roasted pork loin recipe, I got the marinade recipe off the radio. A chef in San Francisco named Narsai David

    gave me the inspiration for this, wonderful dish

    Oh, I need to try the onion soup mix. I love roasted veggies. I thought the use of Pesto was very interesting. Very good, too.
