Recipe Notes
  • This is a summer vegetable recipe which means you can use up whatever you have---squash (zucchini, yellow, patty-pan), onions (red, white, green), peppers (green, red, yellow), tomatoes (cut in wedges), etc.  Use your favorites.
  • The addition of fresh vegetables like fresh oregano and thyme would be yummy; add them with the cheese.
  • I have a metal 9x13 inch pan that I dedicate to roasting vegetables, but a big sheet pan would also be perfect or stoneware also roasts delicious summer vegetables.
  • Summer vegetable bake can be modified for as little or as much that you need to feed your family.  Add more vegetables if needed or use less if you cooking for one.
  • Try swapping in a different cheese in these summer roasted vegetables.  Try Gruyere or fontina cheese.
