1/4 cup Pitted Kalamata olives, pitted and roughly chopped
2 teaspoon Fresh thyme leaves, divided, plus more for garnish
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil in a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Layer half the leeks in dish, then cover with half the potato; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper. Top with a layer each of half the eggplant, half the zucchini, and half the tomatoes; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper. Scatter with half the olives and half the thyme.
  3. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil. Repeat layering and seasoning with remaining vegetables. Drizzle with remaining oil, and cover loosely with foil.
