Reviews forBalsamic Roasted Vegetable Primavera
"Tasty, light, and different!"
"I had a medley of vegetables that needed to be used up immediately: onions, spring peas, yellow squash and colored peppers . Used rotini. Loved it."
"Outstanding! I used spaghetti, and served it warm."
"This is easy and flavorful. After reading the other review I cut my carrots thinly. I also added some sliced sweet onion to the carrots, tomatoes and zucchini. I used fresh rosemary and thyme. My husband loved this. I will make it again."
"This was really tasty. Carrots take longer to cook than zucchini, thinly slice them.I used home grown basil."
