Zucchini Au Gratin

Hubby and I are back to eating low carb.  So I was on the hunt for a low carb recipe for these organic zucchini’s that I bought at the grocery store.  Well after hunting on the Internet, I found this delicious sounding recipe on a site called mylife-blogged.com.  Here is a link to the recipe —> Zucchini and Squash Au Gratin.

Because I only had zucchini on hand, I made the recipe solely with zucchini.  But I’m sure adding squash or any other veggies would be super delicious too!  The recipe is extremely simple.  In fact, both my boys, ages 9 and 11, helped me.  I used my mandolin to cut the zucchini and then laid the zucchini evenly in my dish before putting the cheese and cream in.  But honestly what I think set this apart, was the sautéed onions.  The recipe calls for shallots which I am sure would give it the perfect added sweetness to the dish.  But since I only had onions on hand, that is what I used.  It really gives a great flavor to the dish.  Here is a pic of my finished product.

As you can see, I cooked it just a tad longer than I wanted.  I was running out the door to pick up my daughter from school, so I left it on the oven and turned the oven off.  Came home and it was darker than I’d like.  But man…it tasted Ahhh-mazing!!!!!  

This recipe is a winner for sure!  It’s gonna stick plenty in my house.  What a hit!  You have got to try it!
