Rosemary Roasted Vegetables
- Servings: 12
Here's a company-worthy side dish that's easy on the cook. This vegetable recipe goes together with ease, then cooks unattended in the oven with the help of an oven bag. The host has time to finish assembling the meal while spending time with guests. Meanwhile, the oven bag steams the vegetables, infusing the flavors of rosemary and pancetta. The extra bonus comes when the bag is opened and the aromas fill the kitchen. When the meal is done, this is one dish that doesn't add much cleanup time. Gather up the bag once it's cooled, lift it from the dish, and toss. It's a snap.
