Just in time for the Fall harvest and Thanksgiving, here is a delicious recipe filled with colorful and flavorful vegetables that will pair well with any main dish.  I love making these roasted veggies for my Thanksgiving guests…they are naturally sweet and when baked with the sweet combination of agave nectar, balsamic and pumpkin pie spice, these veggies are out-of-this world incredible.  So, go ahead…wow your guests this Thanksgiving with my roasted veggie recipe…I sure know that my family will be enjoying these veggies next Thursday.

Mom, get the oven ready! We’re makin’ roasted veggies…

I hope you’re ready.
