Roasted Vegetable Sandwiches (Diabetic)


2 zucchini (about 8 inches long), cut diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1/2 large purple onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices and separated into rings
4 ounces mushrooms, thickly sliced
1/2 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
1/2 cup bottled balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing
1 jar (7 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained
Cooking spray
9 (2-ounce) French rolls
9 (3/4-ounce) slices smoked provolone cheese


Place zucchini slices, onion rings, mushroom slices, and quartered artichoke hearts into a bowl. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and toss to coat vegetables well. Let mixture stand at room temperature 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Gently toss in red peppers to coat with dressing. Drain vegetables and discard remaining dressing. Preheat oven to 450F. Spread out vegetables in a 9″ x 13″ pan coated with cooking spray. Roast vegetables for 1520 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork;
carefully stir halfway through cooking. Warm French rolls. Split rolls and place
the bottoms on a baking sheet. Drain liquid off vegetables. Spoon about 1/2 cup vegetables on the bottom of each roll. Top each with a slice of provolone cheese and the other half of the roll. Return to the oven for 12 minutes, or until cheese melts.
