Inspired by Julia Child's classic recipe for Tian de Courgettes au Riz (zucchini gratin), Virginia Willis's version is comforting yet fresh and clean. Use some of your fast-growing garden zucchini in this gratin, which is similar to the classic and well-loved cheesy squash casseroles, minus the heavy mayonnaise. This recipe, from her column Cooking with Virginia, is big enough to serve ten people with generous-sized servings. And with an active time of just 15 minutes, this will soon become a favorite go-to summer recipe. Simply cook the onions and garlic until fragrant, add flour and stir in the roughly chopped zucchini. Add remaining ingredients, including rice, and pour the mixture into a baking dish. Or, to simplify and cut down on dirty dishes, you can cook the entire recipe in a large ovenproof skillet. Bake this gratin at your next family reunion.
