MY REVIEW

Ick! Looks better on paper than it tastes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2011

I liked this a lot and thought it was easy. Each time I have made it I have added a different vegetable, some root veggies cut real thin (a beet and a rutabaga) and I have added more carrots. It is just one of those really good ideas that lead to lots of others.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 9, 2011

I found the veggies kind of bland.I cooked all my veggies then i tossed them with a light italian dressing.If you roast the veggies I tossed with dressing and then roasted them very good hot or cold. even kids like this dish

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2010

I have made this recipe several times although I use regular Italian salad dressing because that is what I have on hand. This is easy and a good mix of vegetables.
