Granted, this is far from authentic, but it's a reasonably healthy and simple-to-prepare meal that reheats well.

This was VERY tasty. My herbs were thyme, basil, and oregano, as well as some salt and pepper. One can of tomato paste made for a very dry pie, so I added at least 3/4 of a can of water as I cooked, and would even add some tomato saue next time. I also added fresh mushrooms to the vegetables. I divided this into individual casserole dishes and topped mine with the cauliflower and husband's with potatoes. Thanks for posting this!
