Pesto roasted veggies are a delicious side dish to serve with any meal. Toss your favorite veggies with some olive oil and pesto, and bake until they’re crisp and tender!
Roasting a bunch of vegetables at the beginning of the week is an easy way to add a little balance to your meals. You can serve them as a side dish, add them to a sandwich or wrap, or enjoy them as a snack.
These pesto roasted veggies are truly one of my favorite simple side dishes. They’re lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, then tossed in olive oil and store-bought (or homemade!) pesto.
The vegetables get perfectly tender while roasting, and pack in that delicious pesto flavor we all know and love.
This recipe would work with any vegetables you have on hand, but I personally love the combination of the bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant and carrots.

I love serving these with a side of salmon and rice, or tossing them onto a salad- like this leftover salmon salmon I shared on Instagram!
