Italian Vegetable Bake

This tasty veggie dish is perfect for utilizing the plethora of fresh vegetables in the market now.

Layered along with mushrooms in this baked dish are zucchini, tomatoes, and onions, drizzled with Italian dressing and fresh basil. Vary the vegetables and herbs according to your taste.  Maybe you'd prefer fresh oregano, bell peppers, fresh peas or corn.  Add a little minced garlic, plus seasoned pepper and bake.

This good recipe is adapted from the Heart Association Cookbook.  It’s jam-packed full of goodness and a great way to fit your veggies in for the day ~ plus, it’s colorful!

The smells of slow cooking spread around the house and impart a unique warmth matched only by the flavour of the food.
