Recipe by Irmgard

This is a Greek dish and is really delicious as a side dish or as a vegetarian main course. If you don't have all of the vegetables required on hand, you can omit the ones you don't have. The main vegetables are the potatoes and tomatoes. This version comes from the Australian Women's Weekly Easy Greek-Style Cookery.
