Vegetables Italiano

Recipe by Geema

I found this on Hungry Monster and thought it looked good, especially with some hot, buttered pasta. Let's try it together.

Oooh, so good! The man and I both enjoyed this very much. I did double the amount of the ricotta layers,because I had bought a pint and knew I wouldn't be using the rest in anything else, and besides you can never have enough cheese :). Because I doubled that I also doubled the egg, parmesan and parsley. I layered everything in a casserole dish and baked it according to the directions. It makes quite a lot but it was well worth leftover, actually, I think I even liked the reheated leftovers better! Thanks Geema!
