Summer Vegetable Gratin
This dish is made with fresh summer vegetables and fresh parmesan cheese and it is healthy and delicious! One of my favorite things to do over the summer is visit the farmer’s market with my sweetie, and load up on summer sqush, zucchini and tomatoes. This dish gives you the perfect excuse!
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 zucchini, sliced
2 squash, sliced
1 onion, sliced
3-4 Roma tomatoes, sliced (optional)
large bunch of fresh basil
salt and pepper
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Special Equipment: Cast-Iron Oval Casserole
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a skillet, add oil and garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes on medium heat. Add sliced vegetables and basil to a seperate bowl. Sprinkle with good pinch of salt and pepper, add in the garlic/oil mixture and toss. Put vegetables into large casserole dish (I used my 2 oval corning ware with lids) and cover with foil or its lid.
Cook in oven covered for about 20 minutes until you can see veggies are starting to soften. At this point, take dish out of oven, uncover vegetables and sprinkle Parmesean over vegetables. Place back into oven under broiler. Watch for cheese to melt and turn a golden brown.
