"So flavorful! My son and husband did not like the cauliflower, but enjoyed all the other veggies. Will definitely make again!"

"I loved this! The best part was the cauliflower, for its softness, but everything was nice and flavorful."

"Very tasty. I had to bake mine a little less time otherwise they were too mushy. Loved the flavor and color medley! Have made this time and time again!"
