I found this in a Mexican cookbook several years ago and have tweaked it over time. It seems more Italian to me than Mexican and that's why I serve it as a side dish to meals like chicken parmesan. A few of my in-laws are vegetarians, so I am always looking for good and hearty meatless dishes. Enjoy!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray bread cubes with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange on baking sheet and toast in 350 over for 7 minutes.
  3. Place half the cubes in greased 9x13 pan.
  4. Drain canned tomatoes, reserving liquid.
  5. Top bread cubes with half of each; fresh tomato slices, reserved tomato liquid (drizzled), ricotta cheese (small spoonfuls placed here and there), drizzled olive oil, canned tomatoes, seasoned salt, oregano, and minced garlic.
  6. Repeat layers and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake covered at 350 for 40 minutes, uncover and brown for 5 minutes longer.

Love this casserole! Made it for my lunch and was very tasty. I had some mozzarella cheese that I also sprinkled on top along with the parmesan for a little extra creamy cheese flavor. Thank you Autism Mommy for posting this recipe!
