Quick Tips

Special Twist: Add a variety of olives when adding the tomatoes and cheese for a more robust flavor.
Ingredient Substitutions: Use Udon or bean thread noodles instead of pasta.
Preparation Tips: Use a large enough oven dish to avoid layering the vegetables when roasting. The steam makes the vegetables take longer to roast and makes them soggy.
