Zucchini and Squash Au Gratin

by Sheryl

Side dish balances the main dish. They may not be the star of the show but no meal is complete without them. I guess everybody will agree with me about that. And when we think of what meal to cook, we always make sure that the side and the main dishes complement.

Zucchini and Squash Au Gratin is something I never thought before. I was used to traditional side dishes until I came across this recipe. What’s not to love? It is pretty easy to make, simple and could go along with just about anything!

My boy even if he dislikes zucchini, he can’t resist! He enjoys every bite and always want more. I know that when you try this, you will never look back! So when you are preparing your meal tonight and you run out of ideas what side dish to cook, try this and I’m sure your family would want more!
