Eggplant and Zucchini Casserole

Well worth the time to put this delicious summer vegetable casserole together. It makes a great luncheon dish with just crusty French bread and a light dessert. Serve it with any kind of meat and salad for a delicious Sunday dinner.


  • 2 1/2 cups eggplant
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup whole pitted black olives
  • 4 green peppers, seeds and membrane removed, cut in thin strips
  • 3 cups zucchini, cut in 1/2 inch slices
  • 2 cups tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and quartered
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


Peel eggplant and cut into 1/2 inch slices. Salt, stack the slices, cover with a plate and place a heavy weight on top. This will press excess moisture out of the eggplant.

Put olive oil in large, deep skillet and saute onions and garlic until onions turn golden. Add the olives, green peppers, zucchini and tomatoes to the skillet. Add drained eggplant and sprinkle the mixture with a small amount of olive oil.


Add oregano and simmer, covered, over very low heat about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Uncover skillet and place in oven for an additional 15 minutes to reduce the amount of liquid. Before serving, salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese.

Servings: 8-10
Prep Time: 20-30 minutes
Cooking Time: 60 minutes all together

Hmmm. It's been a while since we had eggplant, so this great-sounding recipe provides the perfect excuse for putting together a casserole which contains this delicious vegetable.


Thank you Keeper. Thumbs up from me too.

Thanks for all the feedback and thumbs up.

Barb, finding a recipe, going out to your garden, and picking what you need! Wow, am I envious...


I'm so grateful when anyone brings me fresh fruits or veggies. I always make something for them in return.

Always remember to "Pay It Forward" : ) Keeper
