Zucchini Gratin

Okay, so it's been a year since I added a new recipe.  I've been a bit busy elsewhere including publishing a book during that time. I ran across this recipe, however, and had to try it as we eat a lot of zucchini.

We are already thinking of great ways to use it and pair it....with risotto, shredding the zucchini into long strands like spaghetti and add some pasta with it, too. 

You might have some ideas. 

Tonight's pairing was with grilled chicken breast.  

I doubt the leftovers will be around for long.  It is THAT good!

4 T. butter
4 large zucchini, sliced
4 medium shallots, minced
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 t. oregano
green onions for garnish

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Melt butter.  Add shallots and garlic.  Cook till translucent, a minute or two.

Add zucchini, cream, salt, pepper, oregano and parmesan cheese.

Let mixture cook 8-10 minutes.  Do not leave it alone.  Stir it the entire time till mixture thickens and bubbly.

Keep mixing while cooking. Add cheddar cheese, and mix till blended.

Transfer mixture to greased 9x13 dish.   Lightly sprinkle with more cheddar cheese.

Bake 10-14 minutes till cheese is bubbly.

Top with green onions.  

Serves 4
