Although this is an interesting recipe, I thought this needed a bit more of a kick for us. I wasn't sure the size pan, so it is possible that I used too big of a pan to make this, however I think this is a great recipe for cleaning out the vegetable drawer and is easily open to adaptations depending what is on hand. I did some subsitutions based on what I had on hand using brocolli instead of zucchini, and 2 potatoes and 1 turnip instead of the 3 potatoes, but using the four tomatoes. I also added a green and red bell pepper to the chopped onions. Thanks for sharing this very versatile recipe.
