Oven Roasted Vegetables

This is such a go-to recipe for me - I never tire of it, no matter the season! It's also a wonderful way to get some fennel in your diet as it is so nutritious and delicious! Enjoy!

Oven Roasted Vegetables
(recipe from Barefoot Contessa, Back to Basics, by Ina Garten)

2 small fennel bulbs, tops removed
1 pound fingerling or small potatoes
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 pound French string beans (haricot verts) or green beans, trimmed
1 bunch thin asparagus, ends removed, cut diagonally into 3-inch pieces
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Cut the fennel bulbs into 6 wedges each, cutting through the core to keep the wedges intact. Place on a sheet pan. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and place them on the pan with the fennel. Drizzle the olive oil on the vegetables, then sprinkle with 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Toss with your hands.

Roast the vegetables for 25 to 30 minutes, until the potatoes are tender, tossing once while cooking. Toss the string beans and asparagus with the roasted vegetables and roast for another 10 to 15 minutes, until the green vegetables are tender. Sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese and roast for another minute or two until the cheese melts.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve hot.

Serves 4.
