This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks, Thru the Grapevine. Another different way to use the zucchini in your garden.

This was really good - basically a grated zucchini gratin. I added a bit of cayenne pepper cause I wanted a little more 'zing' in ours, but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Good comfort food.
