  • 1 medium onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick and separated into rings
  • 4 large carrots, sliced on the diagonal 1/2-inch thick

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a large baking dish, toss the onion with the carrots, fennel and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the vegetables for 20 minutes, or until crisp-tender and golden.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, stir the pesto with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the pesto to the vegetables; toss to coat. If using the olives, scatter them on top. Bake the vegetables for 10 minutes longer, or until tender and browned. Transfer to a bowl and serve hot or at room temperature.
