Fresh Peach and Zucchini Casserole

This was listed in our local paper as coming from the New Jersey Peach Promotion Council. I entered the recipe as printed in the paper, but when I made it I sliced the zucchini very thinly, halved the amount of cheese, and left out the salt. I also used about 1 tablespoon of dried thyme since I didn't have fresh. My husband and I devoured half of it at lunch and decided to save the rest to have at dinner over basmati rice. I'd like to try it with fresh basil as well.

Wow, I just loved this! DH did not care for it, personal taste preference. I did try this with basil in place of the thyme, wonderful! I also used frozen diced peaches. Thanks!

Who knew peaches and parmesan were such delightful companions? I used yellow crookneck squash and about 1 tsp fresh thyme. I didn't want the thyme to overpower the flavor of fresh peaches and summer squash. I thought the amount was just right. This is very saucy (although thin) so it would work well over rice as noted by Sonata.
