I was eager to concoct a suitable meal for guests on my student budget by utilizing ingredients already in my apartment. With one vegetarian on our guest list, I aimed for veggie-friendly, economical yet still rich and satisfying. I served this with sun-dried tomato bread and not a morsel remained--very filling AND loaded with vitamins!
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Super super tasty dish. Will become part of my fav recipes collection. I don't think I would change anything about it to be honest but if I do I will post the changes.... - 03 Apr 2015
Great recipe but unfortunately Parmesan cheese isn't veggie, it uses calf rennet! I substituted a similar style cheese instead, worked just as well - 07 Dec 2014
Heavenly! A really tasty dish, which will be very useful later in the year when peppers, courgettes and tomatoes come into season. - 21 Apr 2010
