Zucchini & Cheese Gratin

This dish has a flavor similar to quiche and very cheesy. 
4 fairly large zucchini–washed and sliced
2 Tbls. fresh chopped herbs  (the recipe calls for tarragon and mint) Since I was out of tarragon, I used mint and cilantro and sage.
2/3 cup half & half
1 egg
salt and pepper
dash of nutmeg
1/2 cup parmesean cheese
3/4 cup other cheese (grated)  I used havarti, gouda, and vermont creamy cheddar
Saute sliced zucchini for about 5 minutes in 3 Tbls of butter or olive oil for 4 to 6 minutes.  Drain on paper towel.  Butter small casserole dish and layer one row of zucchini.  Sprinkle herbs on top of that.  Sprinke 1/2 cup cheese over that. Repeat zucchini, herbs, cheese, and then zuchini again.

Save remaining cheese for top.  Whisk together egg, half & half, nutmeg and salt and pepper  and pour over top of zucchini.  Top with remaining cheese.  Bake for 35 – 40 min in 400 F degrees oven.
