I cook for two and a half (I'm not going to say "men" - that's annoying), which is why I heart this cookbook. However, sometimes it yields such great results that I could eat the entire two-person portion all by my lonesome. Like this Vegetable Gratin. Make it, but double or triple the recipe. You will be pleased!
Adapted from Cooking For Two
1 zucchini, sliced
1 yellow squash, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
1 small onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp fresh thyme
1/2 cup grated Romano
2 T olive oil
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and saute until golden brown, roughly 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, combine sliced zucchini and squash with the rest of the olive oil, garlic, thyme and salt and pepper. In a small baking dish, start layering vegetables starting with zucchini, then onions, then squash. Repeat until all 3 are gone.
Top with sliced tomato and Romano cheese.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, until cheese is golden and bubbly. Mmm, bubbly cheese.
