Baked Veggie Casserole

I love baked veggies and this is so quick and easy. You can use it as a main dish or as a side dish with your favorite fish or meat...This is a great way to use up left-over veggies too.
I like cauliflower, red bell peppers, and green beans, or pea pods and broccoli.
Fresh are the best but the thawed frozen mixed veggies are good too! Don't forget the lemon juice for drizzling over veggies.
