Barley Casserole

Place 1 cup dry (regular, not instant) barley in a greased 2 qt casserole. Add 1 cup chicken broth. Put in 1 can (16 oz) any kind (stewed, diced, whole, etc.) tomatoes. Then top with any vegetables you have on hand...onions, carrots, celery, any bits and pieces. Add some frozen limas, etc. if you have them. Fill up casserole and add herbs, salt, pepper, to taste. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour or so until liquid is mostly absorbed. Just before serving, remove foil and top with generous quantity of grated cheese (Cheddar or Mozzarella) plus a dusting of Parmesan if desired. Return to oven until cheese is melted.
