This is a delicious, simple Italian dish.. Use whatever veggies are in season. Try serving with my Mortadella Roll Ups With a Salami and Cream Cheese Filling and my Hummus

- 2 green peppers, cut into chunks
- 2 large red onions, cut into chunks
- 1 lb mushroom, of your choice
- 3⁄4 cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon honey

- Add the mushroom and continue steaming for 2 more minutes.
- Place the hot veggies in a large, flat dish.
- Toss with the rest of the ingredients while still warm.

My husband and I enjoy marinated vegetables, however this recipe wasn't quite right for us, flavor wise. I think the only vegetable that should have been partially steamed was the cauliflower. Should I make this again, I would also add some herbs for added flavor. Very easy to prepare, just not our taste. :)
