I found this recipe in a local farm publication. I guess that's fitting, because whenever I make it, I use fresh vegetables grown on our farm. This hearty recipe comes in handy whether you're feeding some hardworking farmers, or a large group at a potluck supper. I've found that a shredder works well for preparing the vegetables and cuts down on baking time.
