Sweet Potato and Zucchini Au Gratin

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by American Chef in Sp

This is a twist on a recipe I found here in Recipezaar as I added the zucchini for more vegetables as I'm always trying to get as many vegetables as possible in a dish and I also added the cheese. I made a few other modifications as well. The Manchego cheese gives it some typical Spanish flavor, which I love to do to typical American dishes.

I'm sorry, either I made this complely wrong, or it is practically inedible. There was waay too much nutmeg, the slices of veggies just sort of floated in the milk and then burned.
