Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . In a small saucepan, bring the cream, rosemary sprigs and garlic just to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat; let steep. When cool, strain, discard herbs & garlic and season the cream with salt & pepper.
  2. Layer a lightly buttered 3 quart baking dish with slices of potatoes & squash, & sprinkle with some of the cheese. Continue layering & sprinkling the cheese until you have used all the potatoes & squash. Bring the steeped cream back just to scald & pour over the gratin. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  3. Bake, covered, until the edges begin to bubble, about 30 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese and bake until the vegetables are tender and the top is browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
