This dish is a staple in my family. Every Thanks- giving or Christmas, my mom will painstakingly align layer after layer, and allow it to cook in her oven. The kitchen is infused with the smell of roasting tomatoes, zucchini, and basil. - Raman


2 tablespoons (30 mL) olive oil, divided
2 medium zucchini, ends trimmed and sliced thin into rounds
5 plum tomatoes, sliced thin into rounds
8 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced thin
1 cup (24 g) fresh basil leaves, chopped fine
salt and black pepper to taste


1. Take a flat baking pan and coat it with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil
2. Lay out the zucchini and tomatoes in rows so that they slightly overlap each other and rest against the previous row
3. Once layered down, add the basil and garlic onto the rows
4. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil, and add in salt and pepper
5. Place the pan in a pre-heated 400ºF (200°C or gas mark 6) oven and bake for approximately 20-30 minutes, or until zucchini has a softer consistency
6. Don’t overcook, as veggies will turn mushy


4-6 servings
