Mix all ingredients into a large baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, uncovered, for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until vegetables are tender. Stir occasionally throughout baking time. Serve as a side dish.
You may also puree this and use it as a base for soup. Just add chicken or vegetable broth and seasonings. At our house we call it Sunset Soup.
