Italian Herb Roasted Vegetables are an easy and healthy side dish for busy weeknight dinners! The roasting and fresh herbs totally take them to another level!
As much as I dearly wish that every night of the week we ate a home cooked dinner, it just doesn’t always work like that. We are busy! With so many nights coming and going we’ve gotten takeout more times than I’d like.
But here’s my take: let’s plan for the convenience we need while we are chasing vibrance with our people.
What that looks like for us right now is using a frozen entree and adding in some simple sides for a complete meal that comes together quickly. I recently picked up a new to me dinner, Michael Angelo’s Family Size Cheesy Pizza Pasta in the freezer section at Walmart.
By planning for a night we needed a quick dinner I gave myself grace that it wasn’t all from scratch while not compromising on delicious taste, authentic flavor and healthy ingredients thanks to Michael Angelo’s! I love that they have no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and ingredients you can pronounce and find in your own pantry too!
After my quick stop to the freezer section of Walmart, I picked up some fresh vegetables to make the Italian herb roasted vegetables. Then I grabbed a loaf of Italian bread from the baker section to complete our family dinner!
The potatoes and cauliflower were already in bite size pieces, so I just needed to slice up the peppers and red onion. Does anyone else find slicing vegetables therapeutic? I love it!
Next, you get to arrange all your lovely veggies and fresh herbs on a large cookie sheet! Look at that beautiful color!!
Then pour on the olive oil and make sure to coat all the vegetables in a good layer.
Pop them in the oven for 20 minutes. (My Michael Angelo’s family size dinner cooked at the same temperature, just a bit longer, but check your dinner for specifics, clearly!) Next, clean up the kitchen, slice bread, and set the table.
Give yourself a slow clap for getting a delicious dinner on the table for your family to enjoy!
