Zucchini-Corn Gratin


I have made this recipe a couple of times for my family and every time it is a smashing success!

All six of us, even my two toddlers.

So I thought that I would share it with you guys and maybe it will become a family favorite for your family, too.

Now, I did double the recipe and omitted the gratin topping...but I'm sure it would be great with it, too!
