Zucchini and Yellow Squash Gratin

This is a great recipe if you are looking for a way to switch up those plain grilled veggies. It is a healthy substitute for au gratin potatoes and kids (or picky boyfriends…ahem) are likely to eat this up!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced crosswise inch thick
  • 2 medium yellow squash, sliced crosswise inch thick
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Sea salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup greek-style yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 cup panko crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 450. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add zucchini, yellow squash, shallots, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until zucchini and squash are crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

Add yogurt or cottage cheese, and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; stir in 1/2 cup panko and cup Parmesan.

Spoon mixture into a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining panko and Parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Bake until top is golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
