Roasted Vegetables with Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar

Recipe: Roasted Vegetables with Balsamic Vinegar

Quick and easy! Use great tasting olive oil and balsamic vinegar for the best results. I LOVE Newman’s Own Organics Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil. They’re both fabulous!

Cut the vegetables that take longer to cook smaller – ie., the carrots and potatoes or add the asparagus in the last 8 minutes. My husband generally likes his asparagus cooked until mushy, I considered that overcooked, so I’m able to cook them together. But if you’re a NORMAL person, put the asparagus in later.  I theses roasted vegetables with an Artichoke Feta Salad with Creamy Green Goddess Dressing and Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breasts.

BTW, yes, I’m using a Zwilling JA Henckels International Eversharp Pro Deluxe 8″ Bread Knife to cut the vegetables. Ironically I got it as a gift with purchase with me Zojirushi BBCCX20 Home Bakery Supreme Bread Machine and it’s the best knife I own and I use it for everything. I did just order a new Eversharp Pro knife for everyday use.
