Italian Zucchini Gratin


 This is a great summer side dish for using up all that zucchini you have been growing all summer.  It’s easy to make!  The recipe calls for Herbs De Provence.  Herbs de Provence is a mixture of dried herbs that are typical in Provence, France.  It includes a mixture of marjoram, rosemary, thyme, oregano and in some american versions may include lavender.  You can buy it in the spice section at your local grocer, or in bulk from your health food store.  If you don’t have this on hand, you can substitute Italian Seasoning.  However, if you can try out Herbs de Provence.  It can also be used on Mama’s Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato Appetizer, is great rubbed on chicken and mixed in with Mama’s Almond or Coconut Blend with salt and pepper for a coating for fried chicken, fried zucchini or fried mozzarella sticks. It is also great added to soups.

    Hey, I make something just like this only I call it Zucchini and Tomato Melt. I certainly like your name much better. Sounds way more elegant. It is delish! I will be trying it with herbs de Provence. I typically use bottled Italian dressing. (sorry)

    I'm going to have to try that, it looks so good. Only thing I'll change is I'll use Calabash Zucchini because I prefer it's milder flavor. To me, regular Zucchini has a fishy type taste to it. Thank you for the recipe, I can't wait to try it.
