It's starting to feel like the "week of parmesan". Nevertheless, I'm constantly seeking new ways to transform a vegetable into something that the kids will eat. Barefoot Contessa (you'll learn that she's my favorite - my friend, Carol, and I stood in line for 2 1/2 hours to get her autograph on her new cookbook. I know but she's as darling in person (10 seconds) as on tv and in her books.) Anyways, she has a Zucchini Gratin recipe that I make often because the parmesan creates a crispy crust on the zucchini so I'm banking on the fact that maybe the kids will think the zucchini is fried.
Here's the link to Ina's original recipe. I've adapted it slightly and use onion powder because the kids are going to turn up noses at real, chopped-up onion pieces.
