This is so good, it's like one of those dishes that makes me wonder why vegetarians try to make their food look and taste like meat. I could definintely eat this by itself for lunch or dinner. Great combination and the balsamic vinaigrette with roasted garlic is just lovely. What a great idea to roast your garlic along with the vegetables.
