Cut all the vegetables into 1/2 cm slices. Boil the potato slices for a few minutes, then put the pieces of butter in a baking dish and make a layer of potato slices. Add salt and then make another layer of tomato slices. Continue to layer with onion, courgettes, and aubergine (first having salted it to release its liquid) and then a layer of peppers. Repeat this layering and finally sprinkle well with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese here and there and dot with pieces of butter. Leave in the oven at 180 °C for 35 minutes, of which the last 5 minutes should be under the grill.
If you don’t like the vegetables that we chose for our recipe, we suggest you try the potato pie with others, for example, artichokes.
