Roasted Veggie Pitas

I feel a little lame today because this recipe is just too simple. But it's not lacking in the taste department. I just threw this together last weekend for lunch after having extra veggies floating 'round the fridge. It was so delicious that I found it to be post-worthy & I was a little proud of myself. Hubs loved it too. And this definitely qualifies for Not So Fat Fridays!

Assortment of veggies, roughly chopped
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
Garlic, minced
Whole wheat pita rounds
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Balsamic Vinegar

Pre-heat oven to 400. Combine all veggies (I used zucchini, onion, red & green pepper) with oil, garlic, salt & pepper. Place on shallow baking sheet & roast for 25-30 minutes depending on how soft you like your veggies. Toss halfway through.

Pre-toast your pita rounds just until lightly toasted. Do not cut through them. The uncut rounds curl up a bit after toasting, making a nice little shallow bowl for the veggies. Top them with some veggies. Place a little mozzarella cheese on top. Broil for just 1-2 minutes until cheese melts & pita round is a little crispy. Drizzle with just a little balsamic vinegar.

Hope all you have a great weekend. As for me, I have to finish creating invites for my son's 6th bday party next month & handle some organizational projects around the house.

Oh, & take a shower for the first time in my totally finished bathroom. Yep, today the glass shower doors were installed so we are totally done now. You saw the first stage of progress here with a little before & after. You can see we ended up taking down the medicine cabinet which just didn't belong anymore & replaced it with a picture that really works. We have a jungle theme in our bedroom which I will get around to showing soon so the bathroom really flows well with it.
