This was the main dish for all veggie dinner. I doubled it all and when it was ready to bake I had arranged the peppers(yellow and red)in casserole like cups, placed a paper-thin slice of red onion on it followed by the eggplant and ending with sliced cheese. I was worried that it might be a bit dry and placed a tsp. of seasoned tomato sauce,spread it out and sprinkled the sun-dried tomatoes. It turned out just wonderful and was already requested to be served again. Thanks for a great one!
