Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 large sweet yellow onion cut in half and sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 russet or red potatoes scrubbed, unpeeled, and thinly sliced
  • 2 zucchini thinly sliced
  • 2 yellow squash thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Once the olive oil is hot, add onions and saute until tender, about 6 minutes.
  • Add the garlic to the skillet and saute for an additional minute until fragrant. Remove from heat.
  • Spread the onion mixture in the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch baking dish. (I just use my standard 9-inch pie dish).
  • Layer potato slices, zucchini slices, and squash slices alternately on top of onion mixture in baking dish. Fit them tightly into a spiral pattern in a single layer in the dish. (Depending on how large the vegetable were, you may have extra. I just place the extra in a baggy and use it to make some more for vegetable tian for the next night.)
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Cover and bake at 375° for about 35 minutes.
  • Uncover and sprinkle Parmesan on top. Bake for an additional 15-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly browned.
