Perfect Veggies

For Father's Day dinner I was put in charge of making a veggie dish for dinner (to go along with the oven-roasted salmon Mom made). This veggie delight was so good and tasty.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Happy Father's Day to my husband, Dad and Father in law!

Oven Roasted Ratatouille
adapted from:

1 red onion, diced
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 t basil
1 t oregano
1/2 t thyme
2 summer squash, diced into small pieces
2 zucchini squash, diced
1 eggplant, sliced thin
3 Roma tomatoes, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

Saute onion in 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil until slightly softened.  Add basil, oregano and thyme; stir in tomatoes.  Simmer slightly until some of the liquid has evaportated.  Put 1/3 of this mixture in the bottom of a greased deep oblong pan.  Place sliced eggplant on the bottom with a layer of the tomato-onion mixture on top. Scatter squashes, green pepper and tomatoes on top. Lastly add the final layer of tomato-onion goodness. Cover with foil.  Bake at 400 for about 30 minutes. Uncover and top with cheeses.  Bake another 15minutes. Serve over pasta if desired.
