Loved this! Aside from the chopping, very easy to prepare - popped it in the oven and had time to do other things while it baked. I did make a few changes: used 1 zucchini & 1 yellow squash, a whole 12 oz pkg of mushrooms,sliced, no green pepper (forgot to buy it, but don't really care for it anyway-may try red or orange next time), sprinkled a mix of chopped fresh parsley, basil & oregano over each layer, used a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh (but can't wait to try it with fresh tomatoes from the garden!), and added browned italian style turkey sausage for my meat-loving guys. I also forgot the parmesan on some of the layers, but added some shredded mozzarella on the top for the last 5 minutes or so of baking.
I used a 9x13 baking dish, and it just barely fit. As noted by other reviewers, 45 min didn't seem long enough, so I baked it for about 60, covered part of the time.
I served this over brown rice, which soaked up all that yummy liquid, and a nice Tuscan bread. Family loved it . . . will definitely make this again with all the fresh veggies from garden. Thanks for sharing!
