Buy canned, quartered artichoke hearts because they're less expensive than whole artichoke hearts. Buy presliced mushrooms.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, and garlic, and sauté vegetable mixture 6 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat. Stir in artichokes, and set aside.

Step 2

Arrange Italian bread cubes in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon zucchini mixture evenly over bread cubes, and sprinkle mixture with cheeses.

Step 3

Combine egg substitute and remaining ingredients (except oregano sprigs) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Pour egg mixture over zucchini mixture. Cover mixture with foil; chill up to 1 day.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 325°. Bake strata, covered, 1 hour or until bubbly. Garnish with oregano sprigs, if desired.

Wow! This was my first time making a strata, and this recipe was so delicious and easy, and was not soggy one bit. I made it before hand and served it for Christmas breakfast. I put red peppers, green peppers, sausage, and onions in it. The whole family loved it - this one's a keeper!

My family loved this, although with a salad the three of us (admitedly including 2 large men) ate the whole thing, so if you have more people to feed, make lots of side dishes. I followed the recipe exactly except to use fresh spinach instead of squash, more basil and oregano, and part-skim ricotta instead of cheddar. The ricotta gave it a wonderful creamy texture. It needed the full hour to bake, and then I let it sit in the oven for ten minutes without the foil while we set table. Really good dish!

This didn't do it for me. I thought it was bland, even with the addition of extra cheese and salt. It was also too dry for my tastes. If I did it again, I'd use less bread. But I probably won't do it again. It was a waste of a lot of good vegetables.

Good make-ahead dish. Next time I will add the oregano and saute it with the veggies to up the flavor. I also will add more salt and pepper.. I'm going to try all of the strata recipes and see which one is the best. This is the first time I tried a strata and I think its great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
