Directions:

Spread onion, asparagus, zucchini, and cauliflower on a baking sheet lined with heavy duty aluminum foil (for easy clean up) pour over olive oil over and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and roast until tender and slightly brown, about 25 to 35 min.

While vegetables are roasting, make sun-dried tomato dressing. Through the feed opening of a running blender, add scallions, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and the fresh basil leaves. Add the vinegar and blend. Scrape down the sides and blend until a paste is formed. Then leaving the blender running add the olive oil in a slow stream allowing the mixture to emulsify. Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the vegetables from the oven and transfer to a mixing bowl. stir the cheese into the vegetables to allow to melt slightly. Fold in peas and grape tomatoes. Mix with enough dressing to coat. Transfer to a serving dish.
