Recipe: Summer Squash Gratin

There's nothing better than fresh produce. I love this during the summer months.  I am so glad to be vaccinated and seeing friends again.  This recipe is a great addition to grilled meats.  Enjoy!


Garlic cloves
Summer Squash (about 6)
Parmesan Cheese
Salt and pepper
Fresh Basil, chiffonade

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Smear butter on the bottom of an oval gratin dish. Mince garlic and spread it on the bottom of the gratin dish as well. The squash must be sliced very thin.  I use my food processor.  

Spread the squash into the bottom of the dish. Add some basil.  Add the cream mixture on top. Make sure to get in between the squash pieces. They must be completely covered in cream. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. 

Clean the edges of the dish. Put a larger tray underneath the dish in case the cream bubbles over. Bake for about an hour until the knife slides through easily.
