The other day I saw this recipe floating around on Facebook and was so impressed with the pretty colors, the fact that the slices veggies are vertical, and aside from the cheese (I used extra cheese), it really is a pretty healthy dish! So yes...I had to make this casserole!/span/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-bUccGvxvtw/UfwS1IA0fTI/AAAAAAAAb10/d1rbY-YvKeQ/s1600/veggie+casserole+5.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-bUccGvxvtw/UfwS1IA0fTI/AAAAAAAAb10/d1rbY-YvKeQ/s640/veggie+casserole+5.jpg" //a/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-NMYmqQiW5GQ/UfwODT5jmWI/AAAAAAAAb1I/eiYIQvTPbec/s1600/veggie+casserole+3.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="640" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-NMYmqQiW5GQ/UfwODT5jmWI/AAAAAAAAb1I/eiYIQvTPbec/s640/veggie+casserole+3.jpg" width="518" //a/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"span style="font-size: large;"Ingredients:/span/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"span style="font-size: large;"Extra Virgin Olive Oil for sautéing/span/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"span style="font-size: large;"1 medium onion, chopped/span/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"span style="font-size: large;"2 large cloves of garlic, chopped/span/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"span style="font-size: large;"Now try to keep the slice thickness the same for all of the sliced veggies.

Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread the garlic and onion mixture on the bottom of the pan and then begin to stack your veggie slices vertically. I stacked my zucchini, then potato, summer squash and tomato. It kind of rhymes so it's easy to remember. Yay that and the fact there are only 4 vegetables!!!/span/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"span style="font-size: large;"Season generously with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme.
