Healthy and Scrumptious! We know how good zucchini and tomato are for us and with the additions of a little spicy Italian sausage, some marinara and cheese...it's delicious!!! You could add or substitute eggplant or other vegetables as you like.


1 large zucchini thinly sliced
4 good tomatoes Roma preferred, diced
1 (15 oz) jar marinated artichokes drained and chopped
1 lb Italian sausage (spicy, sweet or mild)
1 cup grated Fontina cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 recipe marinara sauce (see blog) or bottled sauce
1-1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
4 tbl unsalted butter

On a baking sheet spread out tomatoes and zucchini. Salt and pepper them. In a saute pan melt butter. Add breadcrumbs and toast until golden brown. Set aside. Remove sausage from casing and cook until done and break into small pieces. Drain on paper towel. In a 8 X 8 baking dish, spread a layer of marinara sauce. Add a layer of zucchini, then breadcrumbs, sausage, tomato, artichoke, marinara sauce, sprinkle of Fontina and parmesan cheeses. Repeat until ingredients are gone. Top with a layer of marinara and cheeses. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes until vegetables are cooked, cheese melted and sauce bubbling. I serve this with just some crusty bread.
