3. Grill each kabob, flipping occasionally, until the cheese is golden.

4. Remove kabobs and from grill and transfer to a platter with the roasted root vegetables, laying the kabobs on top of the veggies. Drizzle the entire dish with the additional 1 tablespoon olive oil and then sprinkle with the parsley and a healthy dusting of sweet ground chile pepper.
