Zucchini, Potato and Tomato Tian

What do you do when you have a mix of all these farmers market vegetables. You obviously make a Tian. It was a spontaneous thing, I thought about adding potatoes and tomatoes to it just to give a nice bright color. It is simple yet elegant! Don't think that it is too much work to arrange those veggies in layers, it is fun and it took me 8-10 minutes and I was done. Of course my kids helped me.

Serves:  Approximately 4-6
1 medium zucchini
1 medium yellow squash
1 medium potato
1 medium tomato
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium yellow onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried thyme
 salt & pepper as per your taste
 1 cup shredded Italian cheese 
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Finely dice the onion and mince the garlic. Saute both in a skillet with olive oil until softened (about five minutes).
  2. While the onion and garlic are sauteing, thinly slice the rest of the vegetables.
  3. Spray the inside of an 8×8 square or round baking dish with non-stick spray. Spread the softened onion and garlic in the bottom of the dish. Place the thinly sliced vegetables in the baking dish vertically, in an alternating pattern. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and thyme.
  4. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, top with cheese and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
