Zucchini Tomato Gratin - Susie Fishbein - Passover by Design

I have been posting many recipes from Tamar Ansh on my blogs.  I handle Pesach by starting with one cookbook and then moving on to the next and I use as many as possible, by the end of the holiday. I, probably have a half dozen Passover cookbooks.  Not having used them for a year, gives me dozens of new recipes to make.  I do repeat some from last year because they were good and I always try some new ones, too.  This is a new one and it was just taken out of the oven.  It looks appealing but I can't taste it. I don't want to bring it to the table already cut into.
