    blucoat's Note:

    This comforting, high-protein gratin is good hot or cold, and especially pretty if you serve it with a fresh tomato sauce. It's from Martha Rose Shulman's column in the New York Times, "Recipe For Health". DO AHEAD: You can grate and salt the squash several hours before you make the gratin. The gratin will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator, and can be reheated or served cold or at room temperature.

      Place the cottage cheese in a strainer set over a bowl, and drain for 20 minutes while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Grate the squash, and place in a large bowl or colander.

      Preheat the oven to 350°F Oil a 2-quart gratin or baking dish. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a medium frying pan, and add the onion. Cook, stirring, until tender, about five minutes. Add the garlic, and stir for another 30 seconds to a minute until fragrant. Remove from the heat.

      I adore yellow squash and I have made it many, many different ways, but I must say this is probably my new favorite way to enjoy it. It takes a bit of time to grate and drain, but don't skip those steps. The end result is worth it. There's no residual water in the bottom of the dish, yet it's creamy and moist. The fresh herbs add a great flavor. I made this just as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thanx!

      We used Butternut and summer squash. We added a bit more cheese as we are junkies. A nice romano and the guyere are fabulous together. For a nice southwest add put in some drained green chiles.
