From Light & Tasty. This would be good as a side dish for lamb.

Top Review by Zurie

I made, photographed and DH and I reviewed this for the HEALTHY EATING thread in the Food Photo Forum, Nov 2010. It gets 5 stars for healthy eating, if you use fresh veggies! As we are only 2 now, I thought this would be great to make, as there would be enough to keep over for another main meal. I layered the veggies as indicated, except in a single layer (as 1 can of tomatoes would not have been enough). I put the potato slices on top, because they do not burn easily. I made these small adjustments: used finely-chopped canned tomatoes in a thick tomato sauce (not sauce), and added a glug of Worcestershire sauce and about 2 small teaspoons of brown sugar, to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. (I always do that, as tomatoes tend to get more acidic with cooking: a tip from my mother!) I used 3 medium potatoes and added the parsley after baking the dish. With it, I made oven-baked chicken wings with a lovely sticky sauce (shop-bought!) and made a large salad of mixed greens with fresh green herbs. Great! Thank you for a VERY healthy dish, so easy to enjoy!!
