Total time



       PREHEAT oven to 180 degrees

       1 green zucchini

  • 3 Tomatoes

        1 yellow squash

        1 red potato

        1/2 cup chopped onions

        1 tablespoon of EVOO

        1 tablespoon minced garlic

       1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

       1/4 cup parmesan cheese

  • Optional sprinkling of  Mozzerella cheese

       dash of salt & pepper to season


1. Gather all the vegetables and slice into 1-2 cm thin slices

2. In a bowl, take your salt, pepper, rosemary, and 1/2 of garlic measured- tossing your vegetables with EVOO so as to be coated evenly. Next take sliced zucchini, squash, and red potato along with your chosen cookware. Alternate slices to make for a splendid photo opportunity, to trick the children into thinking its going to be the best vegetable dish they’ll ever eat. Layer them standing on their sides and the skin facing up.

3. Sprinkle remainder of garlic, all of onions and cheese (of choice) on top of sliced produce.

Bake at 180, covered, for 20-40 minutes (this depends on your oven temps)
