This stuffing is a labor of love, but I assure you it’s well worth the effort – the roasted vegetables are gorgeous in here; use about half of a loaf of your favorite bakery-brought (or homemade, if you’ve time) bread – it makes all the difference. The original recipe doesn’t specify an amount of time you should roast the vegetables; I found that 25 - 30 minutes is perfect. Err on the side of 30 minutes if you prefer your vegetables on the more caramelized side (yum!).
