This is the easiest and tastiest way for us to roast veggies. We always make tons and devour them at one sitting. The large pieces allow the kids to see what they are eating and they are large enough that they can eat selectively. It's also good for busy nights because I can do the prep ahead of time and it cooks quickly. A variation we love is to mix these with Orzo and parmesan cheese - just EEEEEEEEVIL. I should warn that my oven is older than me - and that is pretty old according to my son. It gets a bit flaky re: temps so keep an eye on these. Some people have had different results with cooking time.
