Easy Roasted Summer Vegetables

This is the kind of thing I live for in the summer: A big pile of colorful, fresh roasted summer vegetables that need hardly any seasoning or fuss! Great for serving on the side of a weeknight meal or a fancy little dinner party. For whatever, whenever, these seasonal summer veggies with olive oil and Italian seasoning are the perfect accompaniment!

Topped with fresh basil and Sargento’s four cheese Italian blend, these roasted veggies were perfectly salty, fragrant and mouthwateringly good. To make it a full meal, you can even toss in some chopped potatoes and smoked sausage, and the cooking time will be the same. Talk about an easy one-pan dinner! Fast, delicious and easy enough for Monday through Friday.

For a light and healthy side dish with vibrant colors, this simple pan of roasted veggies with HUGE flavor can’t be beat! Grab the ingredients at your local farmer’s market, pour a glass of wine and mix up this scrumptious side for dinner some night. You’re gonna love it!

    Gorgeous Roasted Summer Veggies and photography, Georgia! Easy is always welcome for weeknight meals. And, there’s nothing tastier than fresh grilled or roasted veggies to go with a main dish–liked grilled chicken, shrimp or steak on the grill. I’m drooling!

    I love anything roasted, and veggies are at the top of my list. Great dish for summer! Loads of flavor, and you can basically make a whole meal out of these. I think I’d stir in some cooked beans instead of sausage, but I like that idea too. Good stuff – thanks.

    Simple and great way to enjoy the element of the summer veggies – not overly seasoned or covered with other flavors. To me, this is the greatest way to enjoy veggies and their real flavors!

    These look fantastic, Georgia! Roasting is one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables. The flavor is intensified and it’s a mostly hands-off preparation. Plus you can use roasted vegetables in so many different ways. I love to add them to panini or mixed in with cooked whole grains like farro, bulgur wheat or brown rice.
