These Italian Roasted Vegetables are a delightful side dish to serve with meat or fish, or as a vegetarian main meal served with rice or pasta.

The veggies, which include zucchini, carrots, and baby potatoes are tossed in olive oil, and herbs, then roasted in the oven.

The Italian-style vegetables are ready in just 30 minutes, and are finished off with fresh herbs and parmesan – delicious!

Italian Roasted Vegetables

I love roasting vegetables in the oven. It brings out such a delicious flavor that you don’t get from other methods of cooking. Plus, being able to cook several veggies at once on a baking sheet saves on clearing up!

Serve these Italian roasted vegetables as a side dish for Chicken Cacciatore or why not cook up a mixture of white and wild rice, or steam some couscous and serve the roasted vegetables on the side as a vegetarian meal. Leave out the parmesan to make the dish vegan.

Italian Roasted Vegetables Recipe Tips

  • Use a large sheet pan to cook this dish. A sheet pan is a metal tray, with a lip all the way around. You may call it a baking tray, a baking sheet, a roasting tray, or something else. But no matter what you call it, they are a versatile piece of kitchen equipment and I love using them! Sheet pans are usually made from aluminium (aluminum) or stainless steel, and come in various sizes. The largest is a full sheet pan, which is usually for commercial use, and too big for home ovens. Make sure you purchase sheet pans that will fit your oven!
  • The recipe calls for a variety of vegetables, but you can add different veggies if you like. Roasting vegetables in a hot oven is one of the best ways to enhance their natural flavor and sweetness. It is also a great way to use up leftover vegetables hiding out in the refrigerator. Most sturdy vegetables are good candidates for roasting, including broccoli, red onion, Brussels sprouts, fennel, eggplant, kale, peppers, and many others.
  • Cut the vegetables into the same size pieces so that they cook evenly.
  • This recipe uses a 1oz packet of dry ranch seasoning. If you can’t source this for any reason, you can make it yourself. Try this recipe for homemade ranch seasoning.
  • While the herbs used in this recipe are dried oregano and thyme, you could use additional/alternative herbs such as basil or rosemary which would taste just as good.
  • Use a large sheet pan, and spread the vegetables out in an even layer. Overcrowding will lead to the vegetables steaming, which we don’t want! We want them to roast.
  • Turn the veggies halfway through cooking so that they can roast on all sides.
  • Buy a block of Parmesan cheese and grate it at home, rather than buying pre-grated – it tastes better!
  • Fresh parsley is used as a final garnish, you could also add torn fresh basil for another flavor.
