    Roasted vegies rock! Try this with brocolli & cauliflower. Can reduce oil by using a Misto or olive oil spray. - 9/16/08

    I find it easier just to brush a little olive oil on the spears instead of the zip-lock bag thing, but that's just me. It's a great recipe - especially if you are getting sick of steamimg everything. - 1/7/10

    Roasted veggies is one of life's great pleasures! I use a squeeze bottle for my olive oils as it lets me infuse the oil with herbs, garlic, and/or chili peppers. But the simplicity in your recipe is waht makes this technique so appealing - 8/15/19
