Do you have trouble getting your family to eat veggies? If so, try slathering them in pasta sauce and lots of cheese. They’ll gobble it up.
My husband was not totally on board with an all veggie dinner but…he loved it and I mean he LOVED it. He was even telling people at work about this dish. Nothing better than having your husband rave about meals you make.
For this Veggie Bake I used 1 eggplant, 1 yellow squash, 1 zucchini and two tomatoes. I thinly sliced each one and layered them on top of each other in a 9×13 baking dish. I started with the zucchini, then the tomatoes, squash and finished with the eggplant. I seasoned each layer with salt and pepper. You want to be sure and season your veggies to enhance their flavor. My favorite part was when I poured a jar of pasta sauce over all the veggies. I used Hunt’s traditional sauce, but you can use any kind you like. Then you bake it for 45 minutes.
The smell of this dish baking is beyond words. The combination of the vegetables roasting in pasta sauce is so fragrant and makes your mouth water. After the 45 minutes is up add 8 basil leaves over the veggies and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Next, add thinly sliced mozzarella cheese and bake for another 20 minutes or until brown and bubbly.
This is a very simple dish to put together, but is a bit time intensive due to the cooking time, but worth every minute.
