The All In One Side

Yesterday we had pork chops on the menu and I had a vegetable bin full of odds and ends, so I put them together to make a casserole that would include potatoes for Tom and at the same time help me clear some of those veggies.

4 small redskin potatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch and parboiled
1 small zucchini sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 each green and red bell pepper, diced
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 tbls. olive oil

1 medium seeded and diced tomato
A handful of large croutons
A few black olives
1/2 to 1 cup grated cheese (I had monterey jack)

Saute the zucchini, onion, peppers and garlic in the olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add the parboiled potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Transfer this mixture to a medium baking dish and top with the tomato, olives, croutons, and cheese.  Bake, covered, at 350F for about 20 minutes, then uncover and continue baking 15 - 20 minutes more.

This is really a complete meal with maybe a little more cheese or some beans added to it.
