Instead of Amy's Dinner, tonight I will provide Amy's Sidedish. I went out last night and was asked to bring a vegetable dish, so I decided on one of my favorite's, this Tri Color Vegetable Tian.
To make it, I covered the bottom of this round baking dish with about 2 sliced and caramelized onions. I then rotated the following in a circular pattern: a slice of tomato, a slice of Yukon Gold potato and a slice of zucchini. A liberal seasoning of salt and pepper and a few whole garlic cloves as well as several sprigs of fresh thyme, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil complete the dish. Cover and cook at 425 degree for about 45 minutes. Remove cover sprinkle with cheese (either grated parmesan or shredded gruyere works really well) and place back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes or until cheese is brown and bubbly. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
