1 cup fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 cups soft goat cheese, softened

  4. Repeat entire layering process, from bread to peppers, twice more until the pan is full.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, cream, garlic, salt and pepper. Pour over strata and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Remove the strata from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature while you preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake strata for 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot.
