I love roasted vegetables and this recipe did not disappoint! Very flavorful and fresh tasting. I also added some Meyer lemon. This went perfectly with our steak and baked potato dinner. Thanks for sharing this keeper. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #36* Since our visit to Sicily last year, I truly notice any recipe which says "Sicily"! This was a tasty prep of fresh veggies with a TBSP of Meyer lemon juice (from a Zaar buddy !), and just the right drizzle of Balsamic ! Will be fixing this again. thanks for posting, Sharon !
