This layered one-pot dish can be assembled quickly and popped into the oven to bake while you're helping the kids with their homework (or finishing your own). This version is meatless, but there's nothing to stop you from sprinkling ground beef that has been seasoned and browned, between the layers, if you like. Serve with a spinach salad on the side for a complete meal. Ingredients with an asterisk (*) are available in the Whole Foods Market Family of Brands.
