Simple Zucchini Tomato Gratin

This recipe is based on something my mom used to make when I was a kid. Sadly, I never tasted it because as a child I hated both zucchini and tomatoes. Basically I was flying blind while re-creating this recipe. Again, thanks to my friend Katherine for sharing her zucchini crop.

3-4 medium sized zucchini (or one for Katherine's gigantic zucchini), sliced
1 can of diced tomatoes (use fresh if you have them, but mine are not in yet)
4 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Lay one layer of zucchini in the bottom of a 9x9 baking dish. Top this with some tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon of cheese. Cover this with another layer of zucchini, then tomatoes, and another tablespoon of cheese. Repeat and end with the cheese.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the liquid is bubbling. Turn the oven to broil and broil this gratin for about 3 minutes.
