Description

You could call it ratatouille, but really it’s just a glorified zucchini casserole. But dang it, it is good! Serve it for dinner with fish, or ribs, but my all-time favorite is reheated for breakfast with a fried egg on top. Heaven on wheels!

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • 1 whole Sweet Onion, Chopped
  • 1 whole Zucchini Sliced In 1/4 Inch Sliced
  • 1 whole Yellow Squash, Sliced
  • 4 whole Medium Red Potatoes Sliced
  • 4 whole Tomatoes (home Grown Are Best) Sliced
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 1 cup Cream
  • 1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 sprigs Fresh Basil, Torn

Preparation

In a medium pan, saute the chopped onion and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Once the onion and garlic are soft, place them in the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan. Top with the sliced zucchini, then the yellow crookneck squash, potatoes, and finally the tomato slices. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Place uncovered in a preheated 450 F oven for 25-35 minutes. Test with a fork to make sure the potato slices are tender.

Take the casserole out of the oven and drizzle the cream on top of the veggies. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese and fresh basil over the top and return to the oven for 15 more minutes. When done, the cream and cheese will bubble and melt. Let the casserole sit for a few minutes before serving.

I serve this with any meat main dish, or my favorite is serving it for breakfast with a fried egg on top with toast. It is the best meal when your garden is bursting with fresh veggies.

Just made this for dinner tonight. The kids loved it! I have enough for a couple of days leftovers–I am looking to try some tomorrow with a fried egg on top!

Thanks!

I loved this, but my kids like it better when I reheated it in the oven the next night with mozzarella cheese on top.

Such a great way to use up some sqaush and zucchini! Even my picky husband loved it. Leftovers of this are wonderful too!

Delicious! I was a little wary because I wasn’t sure about the combination with the potatoes but it was very good. Better yet, we tried your combination with the toast and egg and it was even better! Thank you!

I think this is the ULTIMATE zucchini casserole. I substituted ruby yam for part of the red bliss potato, one more delicious texture in this amazing dish. I cannot say THANKS enough!

I couldn’t get yellow squash and had to stick to all zucchini but it was still very nice.
