So simple, so healthy, so delicious! This versatile roasted pepper and vegetable recipe makes a great side dish for almost any meal. You can use any number of seasonal vegetables, herbs, and spices. The secret is a nice hot oven which will help caramelize the edges of the peppers, and give the roasted vegetables a deep, rich flavor.

This is a great recipe. I had the oven on anyway (roasting a chicken) & I hate to waste energy, especially in the summer when it heats up the kitchen. I used a mix of fresh summer veggies from our local farmers' market -- zucchini, summer squash, 2 big bell peppers (red & green), & even a few cherry tomatoes & fresh carrots & really tasty yellow string beans. Sooooo good!
