It doesn't matter. "Baking" is usually meant for breads and pastries. "Roasting" is meant to describe meats that are cooked in the oven.

That's my only experience thus far. Don't know if I messed up or what. I slathered VOO over them prior to roasting. I don't recall what I roasted at, but it was something like the temps mentioned here.
Roasted peppers will not have the "crisp texture of fresh peppers."
They will be sweeter and more tender.

Hi All,
Love the veggie recipes I've found here, especially the roasted ones. Can someone tell me what "evoo" is? You all seem to recommend it.

thanks!
Lisa

I roast butternut squash regularly. I think it has a better flavor than when it's boiled.

My wife and I LOVE roasted squash. When I make it she has been known to eat only that for dinner sometimes.
