Foodie Friday- A Gourmet Waffle Shop & Catering- Lasagna Cupcakes and Vegetable Spiral

SHERMAN, TX-- The ladies of A Gourmet Waffle Shop in Denison join us to create a beautiful Vegetable Spiral and some Lasagna Cupcakes.

Vegetable Spiral
2 tbsp olive oil (divided)
1 large sweet yellow onion cut in half and diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 large Roma tomatoes
1-2 russet potatoes , unpeeled
1 yellow squash
1 zucchini
Sea Salt, freshly cracked pepper, to taste
Dried thyme, to taste
½ cut grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven 375 degrees.
Coat the baking dish with olive oil spray. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and sauté until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 60 seconds. Spread the onion mixture on the bottom of the greased baking dish.
Slice the potatoes, zucchini, squash and tomatoes in ¼ inch thick slices. Layer them alternately in the dish on top of the onions, fitting them tightly into spiral, making only one layer. Season with sea salt, black pepper and dried thyme, to taste. Drizzle the last tablespoon of olive oil over the top.
Cover the dish with foil and bake for 35 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Uncover and sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until browned. ENJOY!
