Italian Herb Roasted Broccoli

    In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, why not serve up a tasty green side dish this weekend? I’m sure the Irish won’t be offended if you add a few Italian herbs and spices to the mix. It is no secret that I love roasting vegetables to help release the natural sugars and boost flavor. Other great vegetables for roasting include:

    Sesame Roasted Cauliflower
    Herb Roasted Apples, Carrots and Onions
    Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries

    Your fork is waiting.
