What a flavor combo! Thinly sliced ripe tomatoes, zucchini and potatoes are sparked with garlic for extra taste, then baked to perfection.

A very adaptable recipe--I basically followed directions, but used small red potatoes, 1 zucchini, 1 tomato and one garlic clove and a small baking dish. It was just the right amount for one or two people. Surus is right--a very flavorful combination. I kept wondering if a layer of onions would work too. Maybe some other time...but this recipe is delicious just the way it is.
