Tian with a twist

The original recipe is called a Tian and originates from Provence.I changed it a little by adding bacon and baby potatoes... So that it's now a one dish meal, light and healthy with fresh vegetables and proteins.

In a buttered and garlic rubbed oven dish, alternate vertical layers of sliced:
- courgette,
- tomato,
- onion,
- aubergine,
- baby potato and
- bacon (vegetarians omit),
and add some garlic in between.

Sprinkle with 'Herbes de provence' and a filet of olive oil.

Place in oven for 45 min at 180 degree celsius, sprinkle with fresh parmesan and place in the oven for another 15 minutes.

Very quick and easy, and although it takes a long time to cook in the oven, you are not tied up in the kitchen. Great to do when inviting friends around as it gives you more time to spend with them. And if you want to prepare a cake at the same time, it's easy too as a lot of cake recipes demand an oven at 180 degrees too, so you can bake both at the same time...

Vegetarians: don't use bacon

Vegans: don't use bacon nor parmesan
