If you are anything like me you love meals where you can throw everything into one pan, slap it in the oven and call it good. Hassle free meals that taste great are a staple in this house. Sometimes I add another green vege, other times, i tell myself I am an adult and i can eat what i want!
The beauty of this recipe is that you can add any vegetable that you want to the pan. I have made this with broccoli instead of zucchini. with added mushrooms, with minced garlic instead of garlic powder. It is a recipe that is endlessly customizable and really does act like a way to use up all the odds and ends of vegetables you happen to have in the house.
By removing the breadcrumbs, you will lower the carb count on this dish too. I would just add extra cheese to crisp up and give you the crunch that the breadcrumbs would.
