    Jenna, I’ll have to look for those pepper rings, I’ve never seen them. We love our veggies roasted in the oven and the balsamic is flavor booster 🙂

    Hi Jenna, Love this idea. We have been grilling peppers and onions and sometimes squash on the grill all sumer. I will have to try this with the broccoli and balsamic vinegar. I know we will love it, thanks for this one.

    Sounds like your son is an apple that didn’t fall far from the tree!
    He came up with a delicious, pretty, and healthy, and easy side dish. I LOVE balsamic vinegar, so this will be on my menu one day soon, maybe this weekend.
    Tell him he needs to start a food blog, like his mom!
    Thanks for sharing.
