on the side

tomato and zucchini gratin

This is a really simple and very flavoursome side dish. I started making this a few years ago and we tend to have it once a month. This recipe is for two people.

Olive Oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 zucchini
2 tomatoes

Preheat your oven to 180 celcius
Wash your veges (especially if from the supermarket)
Put around a tablespoon of oil in the baking dish and add your crushed garlic. 
Slice zucchini and tomato (around 1/2 cm width - try and keep this consistent)
Layer the zucchini and then the tomato (if you are feeding more then keep alternating the layers, adding crushed garlic between them)
Sprinkle grated cheese on top and bake in the oven until the cheese is golden brown and the zucchini is cooked. 

Back at work yesterday and quite a shock to the system! Most of the snow has melted now but is creating a new potential hazard. See the pics below:
