Easy Vegetable Bake

(These are approximate as it will depend on the size of your casserole dish)

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 zucchini
  • 1 onion
  • 3-4 tomatoes
  • 1 cup of mushrooms
  • 1-2 cups of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of basil

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Slice the vegetables into 1/2 inch thick slices.  Dice onions and mince the garlic. Roughly chop basil. Grate about 1 cup of Parmesan cheese.

Saute onions with a little oil until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and stir. Place this as your first layer. On top, add some grated cheese and chopped basil.

Layer your veggies, alternating them until the dish is filled. Try to pack them as tightly as possible. If you have a round container you can layer them in a spiral. If you have a rectangular container, layer them horizontally.  Sprinkle the remaining amount of cheese and basil on top.

Cover with aluminum foil or lid and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.  Uncover and bake for another 30 minutes until golden brown.
