This recipe is a great use for fresh squash and zucchini…and as beautiful as it is delicious.
Nonstick cooking spray
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 large yellow onion, small diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
1 medium yellow squash, thinly sliced
1 medium baking potato, thinly sliced
2 medium Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning (heaping)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat a round pie pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium pan, heat olive oil. Once hot, add chopped onion and garlic, cooking until soft and fragrant, 5-7 minutes. Spread the onion and garlic mixture on the bottom of pan. Evenly arrange the sliced vegetables on top, alternating as you go. Once you get all the way around, continue layering to fill the middle until no open space remains.
Drizzle all over with 1 Tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil and bake covered for 30 minutes.
Remove aluminum foil and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. Return to oven and bake uncovered for an additional 15 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.
