Roasted Summer Vegetable Bounty

June 22, 2019



 

This recipe is a gardener’s best friend.  It looks and feels like a warm Italian evening on an elegant piazza, but is so carefree!  I often take my baking dish into the garden, fill it with cherry tomatoes, basil, oregano, summer squash, eggplant, or whatever assortment is ripe and put it into my oven!  We eat it smeared on garlic toast like a warm bruschetta or tossed into pasta for a full meal, and I’ve been known to eat it straight from the pan.

6 cups of assorted ripe vegetables, such as peppers, onion, tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, etc. roughly chopped to 1”.

1 clove of garlic, roughly chopped

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 TBSP fresh oregano

6-7 large basil leaves

3 TBSP olive oil

¼ cup grated parmesan cheese or crumbled feta

 

Stir all ingredients together and place in baking dish. 

Roast at 400 degrees for 1 hour. 

Serve over fresh pasta and top with cheese.

    Hi Jordan, your taking your baking dish to the garden reminds me of simpler days over twenty years ago, when our then three years old daughter, charis, would completely abandon her little ‘reaping basket’ and squat in our tiny strawberry patch eating away. 😄 ‘joie de vivre’!
    Blessings!
