Layer half of the crackers in the prepared baking dish, overlapping slightly as necessary to form a single layer. Spoon half of the vegetables over the crackers and smooth into an even layer. Sprinkle evenly with 1 c. of the mozzarella. Repeat with remaining crackers, vegetables, and cheese for a second layer.

Whisk the milk, eggs, pepper, red pepper flakes, nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp. salt together in a bowl. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the baking dish. Place the baking dish on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake until the eggs are set and the top is beginning to brown, 25-30 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, then serve with tomato sauce.
