We ended the year with a nice even number…150 pasta meals since I started this nonsense back in May.  I would like to continue for another 4 months so I can complete a year of pasta.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to come up with new ideas, so some repetitions are unavoidable.  When they do occur I will try to come up with a new twist to the recipe.


Portobello mushrooms
Yellow squash
Bell pepper
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar


Cut the vegetables into bite size pieces of varying shapes and place in a large bowl.  Add olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, and the parsley and mix well.  Cover and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for about an hour.

Spread the vegetables onto an oiled baking tray, trying not to overlap them and place on the middle rack with the oven at 425 degrees.  Roast for about 45 minutes, checking and turning the veggies as needed in about 30 minutes.



This was a great way to start the new year.  I went back for seconds and had to refrain from going back for thirds, so there are leftovers in the fridge.

Happy New Years everyone.

It looks wonderful. We always think your dishes look wonderful. But we are beginning to think you use your artist eyes to arrange those veggies on the roasting pan. They look better than ours ever do! Whatever the reason, we enjoy it and are inspired by the quest.
