Tomato and Zucchini Gratin {Secret Recipe Club}

Jun 02

Secret Recipe Club

This month for the Secret Recipe Club I was matched with Della Cucina Provera. I loved exploring Francesca’s blog. Her recipes look delicious– and she says that she is inspired by a Tuscan way of life. “It’s about simple, seasonal ingredients and forgiving measurements.” I can absolutely get behind that!

I chose to make a Zucchini + Tomato Gratin– it was so good! I ate it as a main course– the hubby ate it as a side dish, but we both agreed how delicious it was!

Ingredients

  • 4-5 roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup parmesan (shaker cheese)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy

Directions

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Slice the tomatoes, and drape tomato slices around a colander. Sprinkle the tomatoes with sea salt. This helps the tomatoes sweat out the moisture.

Heat 1 tbs olive oil in a pan, and sautee zucchini until golden, about two minutes on each side.

Now, layer the tomatoes and zucchini slices in a baking tray.

Mix parmesan cheese and garlic. Spread over top of the veggies. Season top with sea salt and pepper.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown.  Enjoy!
