Vegetable Marengo - An End of Season Vegetable Dish

So many fresh vegetable in August and I was always looking for ways to use vegetables from the garden and this Vegetable Marengo was it. My kids love it and every year around this time request this recipe. 

I made it for my daughter and friends while camping last weekend. It was a huge hit. 

Eclectic Red Barn: Vegetable Marengo

Although I no longer have a garden, you can get these vegetables are your local farmers market or grocery store. 

Now I will tell you that this is NOT a recipe that you make in under 30 minutes. It takes 2 hours to cook. 
Maybe that is why I only make it once or twice a year.

This was on my plate. The flavors are just so amazing.

You can use whatever vegetable you have. I have pulled so many different ones from my son's garden that I had to push them down to get them all in. However, the ones I listed go well together.

Needless to say, you need a deep dish pan for this.
