veggie pie

during the week it's easy to throw together meals with whatever i've got in my house, and what's out in the garden. with a bunch of veggies, ricotta, and parm i threw together a lasagna of sorts sans pasta. the first layer was some tomatoes since i didn't have any sauce in the house- i actually liked that the dish wasn't overpowered by a sauce, but you could use sauce as well. i grilled up some eggplant and zucchini to soften them then dipped the eggplant in a little bit of egg then in bread crumbs to give it substance and have the dish hold together. some Hawaiian onion was softened as well. for the ricotta mixture i added some Parmesan, one egg, fresh basil and oregano chopped up, and salt and pepper for seasoning. i layered up the veggies and had the ricotta mixture in the middle. made the house smell great, and good leftovers too.
