Zucchini Goat Cheese Gratin

Summer squash is so versatile and fantastic, prepared in a variety of ways, and all summer long we have been coming up with delicious new variations featuring zucchinis. This dish came about a bit by accident, starting with a little bit of this and that and it was so amazing we had to share. If you have any left over try it in a quiche the next day or simply with a fried egg on top.
