This dish is a wonderful side dish – especially in the colder weather when the desire to eat comfort food is strong! You could also add some chopped cooked sausage or cooked bacon to it if you wanted to make it heartier, but then of course it wouldn’t be vegetarian. 🙂
Melt some butter in a large pan and add olive oil. Slice up some zucchini (two large or three medium), then sauté them in the pan until tender and starting to brown. You’ll need to flip them over half way through cooking. Oh and I had to do mine in three batches!
Once the zucchini has cooked, drain on kitchen paper and then place in layers in a baking dish. In a bowl, mix together shredded cheese (I use an Italian blend), sour cream, chopped green onions, an egg, fresh chopped basil, salt and pepper. Actually the basil is optional but it does add a fantastic flavor.
Spread the mixture over the zucchini. Cover the dish and bake for 30 minutes in a preheated oven. Leave for 5 minutes before serving.
This dish works really well as a vegetarian meal for two people, or as a side dish for four people to accompany meat or fish.
