Delicious! I could probably eat the whole thing by myself. : ) If you line your cookie sheets with foil there is very little clean up with this recipe.
This was very easy and tasted great. I liked the method of coating the vegetables in a plastic bag--far less mess than trying to do it in a bowl. Will make again. Thanks.
