Provencale vegie 'pie' with a cheese crust


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal). 
  • Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot and gently sauté the onion, garlic, chillies and capsicums until tender, regularly stirring. 
  • Then add the zucchini, squash, eggplant and beans. Stir well and cook for about 5 mins or so. 
  • Add the tomatoes, 1 cup stock and seasonings. Mix well and bring to the boil. Then turn the heat down and gently simmer for about 15-20 mins until the vegies are very tender and the sauce is thick and fragrant, adding more stock if needed. 
  • Then add the cannellini beans and briefly cook, before carefully transferring the mixture to a large gratin (or any large ovenproof) dish. 
  • Sprinkle the tasty cheese and then the parmesan and a little cream over the top. Cook in the oven for about 15 mins until the top is golden brown and bubbling.
