Rosemary Balsamic Roasted Root Vegetables

One of my favorite things to enjoy during the cooler months is root vegetables!  They are good for you, and really delicious!  I think they taste the best when roasted, because it brings out all of their sweet flavor.  They make the perfect side dish, and would even be great for Thanksgiving dinner!
