Roasted Vegetables

I had a lot of pieces of different vegetables left over from this week, red, green, yellow peppers, mushrooms, onion, zucchini and asparagus. So I chopped them up, tossed them with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted them, not really having any plan on what to do with them when they were done. I could have just eaten them as is but they needed to turn into supper. I ended up mixing them with orzo and chicken thigh meat, sprinkled on a little fontina cheese and it wasn't bad. Forgot to get a picture of that.

As they were roasting I had so many different ideas, frittata's, gazpacho, omelet, different pasta dishes, definitely some things I want to try. Roasted vegetables are so easy to make and have so much flavor.

What are some of the things you do with roasted vegetables?

I'll bet it was delicious. The caramelized flavor of roasted vegetables is a thing of beauty in my book. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jaynie-I grill veggies on our bbq in a package of foil. After rinsing different coloured large sweet peppers (yellow,orange,red, and green ones)-I remove center stuff, and then chunk them up.
In a bowl, I mix them with Italian Dressing and marinate for 15 mins.
Grill for just a quick 3 minutes and Presto!! VEGGIES.
YUMMO. I put that on Tasty Kitchen a few weeks ago.
My chili has green olives in it, meat, diced onions, red kidney beans, my roasted tomatoes, tomatoes, chili powder & flour and cheese. Yummy too.

I like this time of year when you can still get fresh veggies from the garden. I know it's the last for the season, but the last are just as good as the first ones of the season. Roasted veggies are so YUMMY!!! in omelets, quiches and I thing best of all in pastas. I love pasta dishes. THANKS!!! for stopping by and visiting. Your always welcome @ heartnsoulcooking.
