  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Chops onions

    Step 2

    I used olive oil and added salt , black pepper , parsley , bay leaves , cayenne pepper and basil. Add how much you think is necessary for your taste

    Step 3

    Cut up tomatoes

    Step 4

    I already chopped up the peppers because am a busy mom.

    Step 5

    Add the peppers into pot and simmer for 4 mins

    Step 6

    Now add tomatoes

    Step 7

    I used this can because I wanted to give it a richer flavor

    Step 8

    Pour in

    Step 9

    I added a pinch, but you don't have to add cayenne pepper if you don't want to.

    Step 10

    Add 1/2 cup water

    Step 11

    Let it simmer for 25 mins on low temp

    Step 12

    Now cut up your veggies like this very thin

    Step 13

    This was also done before hand same size

    Step 14

    Now blend all the veggies

    Step 15

    Sauce should look like this

    Step 16

    I used a foil tray but you can use anything. First I layered it with the sauce.

    Step 17

    Now I took the veggies and put it around like so until it covered the whole circle. Don't worry it does not have to be perfect

    Step 18

    Then I decided to layer it again with sauce

    Step 19

    I layered the veggies again, mine looked like this but like I said you could probably do a better job. Drizzle oil on top then cover with foil. Put in the oven at 375 for two hours

    Step 20

    I know your not suppose to add cheese but I did, and it taste great with it or without it .

    Step 21

    This is the final product like I said you don't have to add cheese but I like everything with a twist of my own. You can have this by itself or any meat product
