6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 each: onion, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, all diced
5 cloves garlic, minced and divided
1-2 teaspoons Mad Dog 357 Scorpion Hot Sauce
2 cans crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon pepper, divided
4 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped and divided
2 each: eggplants, zucchini, both sliced
6 Roma tomatoes, sliced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
Oven preheated to 375˚F
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, peppers and 3-4 cloves of the minced garlic and cook, stirring regularly, for about 10 minutes, until soft. Add the Mad Dog 357 Scorpion Hot Sauce, along with the cans of crushed tomatoes, and season with half the salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and stir in half the basil. Spoon the sauce into an oven-safe casserole dish. Top the sauce with the sliced eggplant, zucchini, and tomatoes.
Mix the remaining ingredients, including the divided ingredients, in a small bowl, then spoon over the vegetables. Cover with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for another 20 minutes.
