1 large zucchini, sliced into thin discs

2 large tomatoes, sliced into thin discs

3 tablespoons olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash the eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes thoroughly. Pat dry and slice into thin discs. Make sure to use a sharp knife. If you have an overly eager child beside you, carefully supervise the child in slicing the vegetables using a mandolin. Proceed to commend the said child for a job well done!
