Yes, you can do oven roasted vegetables and cheese using frozen vegetables. I live 30 minutes from the closest store and running into town to the grocery store is not always economical. Therefore, I need to have a full pantry and freezer.

Easy Weeknight Side Dish
Oven roasted vegetables are the perfect weeknight side dish for many meals. When you have them on hand; even in the freezer, they cook up quickly and taste delicious. This recipe requires very little preparation.
Let the oven do the work for you.
Roasted Frozen Vegetables
Often, I arrive home from work at 6:30-7:00 pm. The family is hungry and I am tired. As moms, we want to serve our family homemade meals that are healthy and taste good too. This is one of those go-to side dishes that satisfy everyone. If there exists an easier weeknight side than roasted vegetables made using frozen vegetables, I’d love to hear about it. If I have the fresh vegetables, I will use that too. However, that is even more work as it has to be washed , dried, and chopped. If I start from frozen, I need to cut open the bag and I am ready to start my recipe.

Try various types of vegetable combinations – find your favorite. This recipe is made from the California Blend. Broccoli and cauliflower are always a hit. Then there is the Italian Blend Vegetables another vegetable variation that includes snap peas and peppers too.
