OK I did adjust this recipe quite a bit but must give Netty the kudos for creating a great flavor profile. This casserole is delicious! Here's how I changed it. I did not use tomatoes because wanted just the potatoes and zucchini and sage to shine and was afraid the tomato would overpower. I grated and used about 1/2-3/4 c. onion (because hubby hates onion in anything but I wanted the flavor)...other than that I followed the directions until I saw it took 1-1/2 hours. I cooked in Microwave for about 20 minutes and got it good and hot and saw the veggies were starting to cook and then transferred it to the oven. Cooked for about 35-45 minutes. It was so good..served with brats. Definitely will make again!

Nice variety of vegetables, and a nice change from the usual boring ones. However, my rice came out a little underdone - next time I will try instant rice.
