Zucchini With Cheese

Boy, the Italian side of our extended family are going to love me this week.

 

  • 1  1/2 lbs. zucchini
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • generous pinch of salt
  • 1  1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1/4 cup Avocado oil
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 x 8 baking dish. With a brush, scrub the zucchini well and cut into 1/4 inch slices (crosswise).

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, pinch of salt, 1/2 tsp. oregano and pinch of pepper. Toss the slices in the flour to coat well.

Slowly heat the oil in a large skillet. Saute the zucchini until golden brown (about 4 minutes) on both sides. Drain.

Cover the bottom of the baking dish with the zucchini and top with the tomato slices. Combine the remaining ingredients and spoon evenly over the tomatoes. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.

Bake for 30-35 minutes – cheese should be melted and the zucchini tender.

Another great side dish. This will serve 6.
