Author Notes: I have shaped this recipe over the years of living on my own. It started with sliced vegetables, until one day I was just not up to the task of slicing them, so I just roughly chopped them, mixed with a can of tomatoes and put them in the oven... good choice after all
Enjoy with some fresh garlic bread, or as a side dish, main dish, with mashed potatoes...etc
