  • 2 cups broccoli florets

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Prepare Vegetables: In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, cauliflower, diced bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, and minced garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss well to coat.
  3. Roast Vegetables: Spread the seasoned vegetables in an even layer on a baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until they are tender-crisp. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  4. Prepare Cheesy Sauce: In a separate bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, dried thyme, dried basil, and paprika until well combined.
  5. Assemble the Bake: Transfer the roasted vegetables to the greased baking dish. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheddar cheese and half of the grated Parmesan cheese over the vegetables.
  6. Add Cheesy Sauce: Pour the sour cream mixture evenly over the vegetables, spreading it to coat them.
  7. Top with Cheese: Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese over the top of the dish.
  8. Bake: Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Then, uncover and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
  9. Serve: Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
