This is one of those things that I came up with trying to use what I had in my fridge. I had peppers, mushrooms, half an onion and feta cheese, plus all the food storage staples in my pantry. The recipe I found online and a slightly different vegetable combo and called for grilling the veggies instead of roasting. Roasting just sounded better and easier. (Roasting vegetables is my favorite way to cook them. It’s worth the effort.) This recipe requires very little effort, but you do have plan ahead a little to marinate your veggies and roast them. The next time that I do this I’ll cut my veggies smaller. Also I am sure that this would work well with a different combination of vegetables, this is just what I did.
