Eggplant, Zucchini, and Tomato Tian

Don't push the veggies to the side! Put them center stage, like in our satisfying Eggplant, Zucchini, and Tomato Tian. Fresh summer squash, eggplant, and tomatoes are the stars in this recipe.  A crunchy, salty, breadcrumb coating atop layers of eggplant, zucchini, and tomato give the fresh ingredients the ideal complement. An 11 x 7-inch glass or ceramic baking dish works well for this recipe, but if you have a 2-quart tian or gatin dish, all the better.
