This is my favorite clean-out-the-refrigerator dish. I make this with what ever combination of vegetables I have on hand. You can easily marinate this ahead of time and keep it refrigerator, then dump it on the sheet pan when you’re ready to eat.

I’m really impressed with these lightly dried herbs from Gourmet Garden, they smell amazing when you open them up and last up to 4 weeks in the refrigerator once opened (and they are already chopped!). A great solution for all those people who ask what to do with all those herbs you can’t use up. Of course, fresh herbs would also work fine here.
