Vegetables Al Forno (Oven Baked Vegetables)

Prep Time:  10 mins Cook Time:  45 mins Serves: 4-6 persons

  7. You have a deliciously flavorful & healthy side dish ready for Thanksgiving.

Background

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Italy but we love to celebrate and give thanks for all our blessings in the USA.  My mom & I came up with this healthy side dish that you can make with your favorite vegetables.  The Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil seasons the vegetables perfectly and you can add a splash of Lemon Olive Oil for a hint of citrus flavor.
