This recipe is FANTASTIC!!! I have made it three/four times since I found it with different variations, though I am rating for the recipe itself. Definitely 5 stars!!! After reading through the reviews, please take into account the cooking time of each vegetable and adjust the size you cut them accordingly. Suggestions to change it up would be: 1.) Instead of plain olive oil, try the garlic olive oil - gives it a great taste. 2.) Instead of olive oil, use Wishbone Italian dressing. 3.) Add onions, whole garlic cloves and quartered mushrooms (must be quartered as whole mushrooms give off to much moisture). 4.) Add Parmesan or Asiago cheese to the bread crumbs. 5.) Change up the bread crumbs to the Italian variety - goes great with the Italian dressing. 6.) Try panko crumbs or the Italian panko crumbs - which are fabulous in place of the bread crumbs. Thanks Jana for submitting such a great and easy recipe!!!
I wasn't really impressed. The only flavor was the italian breadcrumbs. I cubed the potatoes and left the zucchini in bigger chunks, so I didn't have a problem with the cooking time. My kids picked the potatoes out and left the pepper and zucchini, hubby said it was just okay. Won't make again as is- maybe if it had tomatoes, or other veggies, and I added cheese it would be tastier.
Made this without the pepper, and it was still excellent. The bread crumbs keep the zucchini from feeling too soft or "slimy" (as my kids say), so even the non-zucchini eaters thought this was delicious.
Delicious!!! I added 1/2 cup grated Parmesan to the breadcrumbs--YUMMY!!! Thanks for a quick, great recipe that my family loves!!!
Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, except added onions and cut the potatoes in slices, not chunks. It cooked in exactly one hour, and the flavor of the red peppers after roasting is amazing! I did not stir the vegetables at all during cooking, and I loved the way one side of the potato was extra cripsy and brown, while the other side was a bit softer, but not mushy at all. This dish is excellent and I would definitely make it again.
This dish is amazing! With a hint of spice and juicy veggies. One hour of bake time was perfect for the potatos. My parents, brother and boyfriend loved it. I reccommend this dish for a family get-together. I would just decrease the amount of bread crumbs. Other then that, it was fabulous.
I've made this twice. The first time I baked it at 350 and it didn't get crispy enough. The second time, I used less olive oil and bread crumbs and substituted garlic powder. I'll definitely make this again. It tastes great reheated, too.
This recipe is so simple and soooo good! Hard to believe you can get such a lovely flavor from so few ingredients. I've made this several times now and really enjoy it - the kids, too! I cut the veggies a bit smaller and spread them out to roast in a jelly roll pan, stirring occasionally - you can reduce the cooking time to 30-40 minutes with smaller pieces. I've served this dish with fish, meat, chicken, whatever - it can't miss!
