Tian Time

My neighbors must be feeling deprived. I never cook for them anymore.  I am too busy cooking for the shelter.  Yesterday I made them a huge tian.
 I sliced up lots of my tomatoes, salted them and them them dry a bit on paper towels.

 I sliced eggplants and zucchini and sauteed lots of green peppers and onions with some fresh herbs from the garden.

 It was all layered and topped with gruyere cheese.

I topped it with kalamata olives and parmesan cheese and baked it for an hour.

 The cleanup crew did a great job.

 Grated cheese was cleaned out of every nook and cranny.

Teddy takes her job seriously!

Teddy knows exactly the right place to be.
I'm so impressed that you can cook large dishes like that - it takes a certain skill. Well done!

Do you ever find they come out too moist or soupy? What am I doing wrong?
