Before going into the oven:
Right out of the oven:
1 cup barley, cooked
5 small zucchini, diced
1/2 red onion, diced small
5 oz. goat cheese (more if you'd like), save a few tbsp. for the top of the casserole
3 tbsp. butter or margarine (I used Smart Balance), melted
1/2 cup grated pecorino romano cheese
1 egg, beaten well
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
granulated garlic/salt/pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the zucchini and onion with the melted butter. Next add in the barley and combine well. To that, add the grated cheese, beaten egg, garlic, salt & pepper; mix well and then add in the bread crumbs. Once all is combined, fold in the crumbled goat cheese and put into a greased baking dish. Top with reserved goat cheese. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
