I've made this dish several times. It is easy and excellent. I enjoy serving it for a family meal or when we have company. It is often requested by my husband. I love so many recipes by Ina Garten.
I was just looking for a way to use up some veggies I had in the house already, and was so very happy with the results!
I halve the ingredients, since i lack a proper casserole dish. My pie plate works great though!
It was so easy and delicious! I am definitely making this again.
Delicious and healthy. Really simple to make using a mandolin.
