Stratas are an Italian dish that is traditionally made with meat and bread. This recipe has taken on a vegetarian version by eliminating the meat. If you wish to have meat in this strata, 1/4 cup chopped pepperoni would be a nice addition.

Not fond of zucchini so may try it with broccoli this Sunday. Sounds delicious and easy.

Wow !!! Those were the comments I received for this strada. I added a package of sweet italial sausage, and some italian sesonings. I found fresh made italian croutons and doubled the amt called for. It was soo good that I made it 2 days in a row. My husband took it the first day to work, and I made if for my office the next. This was my first recipe I have tried from this site. Can't wait to dazzle the office folks again!
