1 zucchini, sliced thin

8 ounces green beans

2-3 garlic cloves, sliced

OPTIONS: You may choose to slice the eggplant and put it in a colander in the sink and sprinkle with salt, leaving for twenty minutes to remove any bitterness. Make sure to rinse well. OR you may choose to peal the eggplant, which will make the dish thicker and the eggplant very tender. Also, to speed up the cooking process in the oven you may saute all of the vegetables in a large pan until hot and heat up the broth until hot. Then pour all of the vegetables into the dutch oven, add the cheese, pour on the hot broth, and bake about 20 minutes.
