Zucchini and Cheese Bake

    Zucchini and Cheese Bake
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/4 lbs zucchini, 1/8" slices
    (about 4 medium zucchini)
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ounce freshly grated parmesan cheese

Butter or spray a 6x8" baking dish or a 6-cup casserole dish. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic; sauté until the onion is soft and translucent. Transfer to a small bowl.

Melt the remaining butter over medium-low heat in the same skillet. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring frequently until the zucchini is tender. Turn the heat to high very briefly; cook and stir constantly until most of the liquid has evaporated.

Transfer to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add all the remaining ingredients except the onions and parmesan cheese and pulse to combine. Add the onions and pulse just to combine. Pour into the baking dish. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the top. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top and set in the middle.

Makes 4 servings.
