Roast veg is just wonderful. I left out the potatoes as we are not eating potatoes right now but everything else was great will make this again. Made for honor thy mother May 2011.
I love roasted veggies and this was great! A very forgiving recipe as I did not have zucchini & summer squash but subbed carrots and celery. Turned out perfectly delicious! Thanks!
