Zucchini and Tomato Gratin

Today’s dish of summer’s fresh, firm zucchinis and tomatoes sliced and topped with cheese is a perfect side or even main entree.  When the garden gives you lots of great vegetables, make a tasty gratin. Classic gratin is fresh vegetables baked with a layer of cheese.  My recipe is slightly different than the classic sprinkling of  Parmesan.  I’m adding thin slices of mozzarello between the rounds of tomatoes and zucchini before sprinkling with  Parmesan.  The result is a beautiful, yummy dish that hits the spot with flavor and ease.  Today’s recipe serves 4 as a side dish or appetizer and 2 as a vegetarian entree. I think it is perfect to accompany garlic herb grilled salmon or grilled chicken. For a meatless meal, serve with bread or rolls and a salad with a lemon vinaigrette.
