These roasted vegetables are the perfect dish for a sunny Autumn afternoon lunch.

Beautiful Donna, from Italy, made this light lunch for me and my BFF.


Roasted sweet potatoes, red peppers and zucchini with olive oil and salt and pepper in a 425 degree oven for about an hour is all it takes.

These were fantastic and tasted great with the mozzerella cheese fritatta with a hint of sauteed onion.

A light touch is the perfect ingredient.
