Oven Roasted Potatoes and Vegetables – A wonderful side dish of roasted vegetables that only requires one secret ingredient for seasoning!
You guys! I’m so stinkin’ mad right now. And it’s not just because we’re stuck in the house because of this blizzard (but that isn’t helping my mood either).
Last night, we devoured these Oven Roasted Potatoes and Vegetables (along side my Easy Roasted Chicken) and I was so excited to share the recipe with you that I immediately sat down and typed up the blog post and recipe. I couldn’t wait to tell you about how I changed up my dinner menu on the fly while grocery shopping and how this recipe came to be. The words were just flowing right out of me. Believe it or not, some days it’s hard to tell a story here. Anyway, I finished my post and added in my photos and BAM! Computer freezes. Computer needs reboot. Christine is mad. So mad that I shut down the laptop and put it away for the night.
I forgot all about said freezing episode until I just now logged on to schedule the recipe for the morning and it hit me like a ton of bricks. The entire thing…..gone.
There is just no way I could recreate the flow of words from last night and since I’m so mad, I’m not sure that I should even try. So here is the short and not-so-sweet synopsis of the recipe:
First of all this is a side dish. I don’t often post side dishes. I’m more of a main attraction kind of girl but sometimes it’s all about the sides. And this is a side to talk about.
If you aren’t roasting your veggies yet, get with it. Seriously, get with it. You get so much flavor from roasting. Here’s the deal with these; all you need to season this entire dish is…….bottled Italian Dressing. Get one that is full of flavor like a Robust or Zesty version. Do you even believe how easy that is? Your welcome.
- 8 small red potatoes, quartered
- 4-5 carrots, sliced lengthwise and then cut into large sticks about 1-2 inches long
- ¼-1/2 lb green beans
- ½ C Robust (or Zesty) Italian Dressing, bottled
- Preheat oven to 425.
- Toss potatoes with ¼ C Italian dressing. Place potatoes on a non stick baking sheet and roast 15 minutes.
