"briam" baked potatoes with courgettes

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 3/16 pounds Potatoes
2 3/16 pounds Medium-sized courgettes (zuchinni)
1⅛ pounds Fresh tomatoes
6 Garlic cloves finely chopped
1 small Bunch parsley finely chopped
1½ cup Oil

Wash the potatoes and cut them into round slices. Clean and wash the courgettes and cut them lengthwise into slices. Spread one layer of potatoes in a medium-sized baking tin. Salt and pepper them. On top, spread a layer of courgettes and salt and pepper them too, then sprinkle on half of the chopped parsley. Spread 3 of the finely chopped garlic cloves on the courgettes. Skin the tomatoes, add some more courgettes with the pulp of the tomato and continue putting a layer in turn; potato then courgette, the parsley, the garlic and the tomato, making sure each layer is evenly spread. Then salt and pepper it all. Add the oil and 2-3 cups of water.

Bake in the oven for about 1 hour.

Variation: If wished, you can replace half of the courgettes with aubergines [eggplant].
