Parmesan Squash and Zucchini Bake

dinner 10 30 13

I love squash anytime of year! Pair this with a nice crispy loaf of bread, Yum!

•4 medium-sized yellow squash and/or zucchini, sliced lengthwise and then into 1/4 inch slices (about 8 cups sliced squash)
•1 Tbsp olive oil
•1 Tbsp minced garlic
•1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves or 1/2 tsp dried thyme
•2 tomatoes, sliced
•2 eggs
•1/3 cup light sour cream
•1 cup crumbled feta (not tightly packed)
•2 T grated parmesan cheese
•1 T lemon juice
•salt and pepper – to taste

•Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a large casserole dish with nonstick spray.
•Slice the squash into 1/4″ slices. If they are larger squash, cut them down the middle before slicing. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the squash, garlic and thyme. Saute and stir just until the squash is starting to soften slightly. Don’t overcook! Remove from heat and add tomatoes.
•Beat together the eggs, sour cream, cheeses and lemon juice in a medium sized bowl. Place half of the squash into the bottom of the casserole (you can be fancy and layer it like in the picture or you can just toss it in. Normally I just toss it in but for the picture’s sake I layered it nicely). Sprinkle on some salt and pepper then spread 1/2 of the egg mixture over the top. Repeat with remaining squash and egg mixture. Top with additional feta and Parmesan if desired.
•Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the mixture is bubbling and slightly set. Serve hot.
