Tomato, Zucchini and Feta Gratin

Recipe by Expat in Holland

This is a recipe I copied from Food and Wine magazine. It is easy and has a great flavor to it. I have substituted thyme for dill. If you have flavored feta available, that is really nice twist to add with this dish. Just delete the thyme. I have done both the original recipe and the flavored fetas with success. It is a lovely way to make a dish when you have a bumper crop of zucchini and tomatoes coming out of your garden.

I love this recipe for it's simplicity. The feta cheese definitely is the key to a heavenly dish, however if I don't want to run to the store it is also good with parmesan. I agree with Queer Eye in the Kitchen Guy, no need to blanch anything, just pop it in the oven and cook for 30 mins. I like to make this a meal by serving it over linguine noodles. Thank you Expat, mmm!
