Menu Monday-Fresh Gratin Squash

Don’t let the title fool you, that is just a fancy way of saying cheese squash!

First grow 2 lbs of yellow squash in your very own raised bed garden in your very own compost.

Barring that you can always buy it at the store, although I don’t recommend it.  Next butter a 10 inch pie plate.  Slice the squash in rounds into a medium sauce pot.  Cover with water and bring to a boil.  Cook about 2 minutes.  Drain and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process.  Layer the squash in the pie plate using an overlapping pattern.  Season with salt and pepper between layers.  Grate fresh Parmesan cheese in between layers as well.  Top with Parmesan cheese and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of melted butter.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  Use convect if you have it on your oven because it makes the cheese that much yummier!

Once again, even picky veggie haters love this dish!
