Roasted carrots, red potatoes and shallots are a terrific accompaniment to any roast meat or poultry dish. For a vegetarian supper, serve over Creamy Gorgonzola Polenta.

I followed the recipe exactly (creamy gorgonzola polenta served as a side) and my husband and I both thought it was great. Seasoned simply. Simply delicious. The vegetables were the stars of this show, not the seasoning. I am a vegetarian and the veggies and polenta were my main course. My husband ate these as a side dish along with some baked chicken and it worked great both ways. Takes a while to prepare and bake but well worth the trouble.
