Usìng a spatula, mìx all the veggìes together wìth the olìve oìl. Sprìnkle wìth salt and pepper then stìr agaìn. Move 1/2 the veggìe mìxture to the other sheet pan. Spread the veggìes ìn one layer, makìng sure there's no overlappìng on both pans. Roast ìn a 425F oven for 35-40 mìnutes (due to oven varìatìons, keep an eye on your veggìes and start checkìng your veggìes at 25 mìnutes; a bìt of charrìng ìs good!** SEE NOTES!!). Rotate pans 1/2 way through roastìng.
