"A-maz-ing flavor! The first vegetarian entree my husband ever raved about. I make these all year long by oven roasting the veggies (slice and toss with olive oil; spread on cookie sheet, sprinkle with garlic salt & roast in oven at 450 for 15 to 20 minutes), which locks in the flavor better than broiling them. Serve on lightly toasted ciabatta buns... delish!"
