    This was Delicious. I usually don't boil vegetables preferring to steam them instead to retain all their nutrition. In this case, for this recipe it just made sense to follow the directions. The vegetables are cooked at staggered times so there was a hefty amount of nutrients in that water. If I had been thinking ahead I would have saved the cooking water that wasn't used for the sauce. It could have been used as a soup base or another sauce.
