Eggplant & Tomato Stacks

1/2C plus 2t. olive oil, plus more as needed
4 yellow onions, diced
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 garlic cloves, minced
10 fresh basil leaves, julienned (cut into thin strips)
1T fresh oregano, chopped
1/4C fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 eggplant, 2 1/2 - 3" in diameter, sliced 1/8" thick
5 tomatoes, sliced 1/4" thick
4 zucchini, halved crosswise, sliced lengthwise 1/8" thick
1/2C grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

In saute pan, over medium-high heat, warm 6T oil. Add onions, salt and pepper, cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Add garlic, basil, oregano, and parsley; cook 2 minutes more.

In large, heavy, oven proof, skillet (cast iron if possible) rub bottom and sides with oil. Place 8 eggplant slices in single layer in pan; season with salt. Top each with 1t onions and 1 tomato slice; season with salt. Top each with 1t onion and 2 zucchini slices; season with salt. Top each with 1t onion. Repeat layering 2 more times, ending with zucchini. Drizzle each vegetable stack with 1t oil.

Bake 40 minutes. Sprinkle each stach with 1T cheese and bake 7 - 10 minutes more.

Let rest 5 minutes, then serve - serves 8.

This can be a full meal for a vegetarian, an appetizer for a dinner party, or a side serving with a family meal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope everyone that tries the recipe enjoys it
