Roasted Vegetable Pitas w/Creamy Herb Dressing

Serving Size: 2
1 cup yellow squash cut into -- 1/2" diagonal slices
1 red bell pepper cut into wedges
1 small onion-cut into 8 wedges
2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
1 large tomato cut into 8 wedges
1/2 cup spinach leaves, torn into bite size pieces
2 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp fresh chopped oregano or 1/2 tsp dried
1 1/2 tsp fresh chopped basil or 1/2 tsp dried
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup Creamy Herb Dressing (recipe follows)
2-4 pita pocket halves

Prepare and cut vegetables. Combine in a mixing bowl all of the above ingredients except the tomatoes, spinach leaves, dressing, and pita halves.

Toss vegetable mixture to lightly glaze the vegetables with olive oil.

Spoon vegetable mixture onto a broiler pan or cookie sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Broil 5 minutes, add tomatoes and spinach leaves to vegetable mixture and stir. Baste with additional marinade and broil for an additional 5 minutes or until vegetables are just tender and lightly browned. Tomatoes and spinach should be just warmed; if you prefer the tomato softer, add with vegetable mixture at the beginning.

Prepare the Creamy Herb Dressing while vegetables are broiling.

Divide the vegetable mixture evenly between pita halves. Drizzle with Creamy Herb Dressing. Serve.
