This was just wonderful! We followed the advice of another reviewer and squeezed the fresh garlic onto the vegetables after baking. Maybe it was the huge veggies we bought, but we had enough to fill a 9 x 12 and an 8 x 8 baking dish. We did run short though on red onion for the 8 x8 dish. We ate it for leftovers throughout the week and this reheated very well in the microwave. A great and healthy dish! Thanks for sharing.

From reading the recipe, which otherwise had really clear instructions, I wasn’t sure what I was to do with the garlic after the dish came out of the oven, so I retrieved the head of garlic about 10 minutes before the dish was fully cooked, cooled it then squeezed the garlic out of the skins and scattered it on top of the vegetables just before serving. I also lightly greased the casserole dish before adding the layered vegetables. A really tasty vegetable side dish which would make a great accompaniment to most other dishes: meat, fish or vegetarian. The rosemary flavour and the garlic blended beautifully with the vegetables and smelt wonderful while the dish was cooking, and the vegetables tasted just so delicious. Everyone I served this to just loved it. There were leftovers, as I was only serving three, and these reheated well in a low oven, with the dish loosely covered with foil.
