I love this recipe! You can do all kinds of things with it by using your favorite fresh veggies from the garden. I am always asked for the recipe when I take it to potlucks. A friend of mine shared it with me so I don't know how she got it but I am glad she did!

This recipe was very good, with a few changes to suite our tastes. on step 3 I peeled eggplant, sliced and saute 10 mins. in bacon drippings first and set aside. then preceded on with step but only cooking the rest of veggies. for 10 mins. I also increased pepper(black) to 1/2 teaspoon and basil increased to 2 teaspoons. when layering vegetables I started first with a layer of eggplant and then half of veggie mix then half of bacon and almonds then half of cheese then repeated. I will make again, We enjoyed it, Thanks
