What better way to spruce up your summer vegetables than with cheese and breadcrumbs? For this French-inspired vegetable stew gratin, you sauté veggies with garlic, rosemary, oregano, cayenne pepper; place into a dish; sprinkle with cheese and breadcrumbs; and bake it in the oven. With just 41 minutes of your day, you'll have a bubbling and browned summer stew. Serve this summery dish as a complement to grilled meats or fish. Or, you can serve it as a delicious vegetarian main course with a crisp green salad and crusty whole-grain bread. It's ideal for a group of four!

1 medium, thinly sliced

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  5. Bake until bubbling and nicely browned on top, about 10 minutes. Cut into 4 portions and serve.
