Roasted Radicchio with Goat Cheese and Walnuts

You came back to find out what I did with radicchio?  I'm so pleased!  Hope this recipe is worth your extra time.

Roasted Radicchio with Goat Cheese and Walnuts
Serves: 4

1 large head of radicchio
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, plus more for drizzling
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup roasted walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Halve radicchio. Cut each half into quarters, so you have a total of eight pieces, and cut out the cores.

Place radicchio on a large baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar.  Season with salt and pepper.  Roast for 10 minutes, until radicchio is crisp tender and caramelized.  

Place radicchio on serving dish.  Drizzle with extra balsamic vinegar.  Sprinkle with goat cheese and walnuts.  Serve warm.
