Someone mentioned a while ago that the summer squash recipe in Issue 27 was wonderful. Could someone post that recipe for me? Thanks in advance. Have a great 4th. Hope Canada Day was good too.....from a fellow Canadian living S of the border.

Summer Squash Gratin
Makes: 4 Cups Total Time: 1 Hour 10 Minutes Rating: Intermediate

For the Gratin Crumb Mixture—
Combine in Food Processor:
1 1/2 cups bread, torn
1 T. olive oil
2 t. lemon zest, minced
1 t. garlic, minced

For the Summer Squash Gratin—
Brush Gratin Dish with Olive Oil. Dust with:
1/2 cup Gratin Crumb Mixture

Grate, Sweat, and Spin Dry:
3 cups (about 2) zucchini
3 cups (about 2) summer squash
1 t. kosher salt

Combine Squash with:
1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
1 T. chopped fresh sage
1/8 t. cayenne

Pour over:
3/4 cup heavy cream

Top with:
Remaining crumb mixture

Preheat oven to 400°

Combine bread, olive oil, lemon zest and garlic in a food processor. Process into fine crumbs.

Brush 1qt. gratin dish with oil and dust with 1/2 cup of crumbs, tilting to coat. Shake excess crumbs into bowl.

Grate squash lengthwise, rotating when you reach the seedy center; discard center. "Sweat" and spin squash as shown in pictures on right.

Combine squash with grated Parmesan, chopped sage, and cayenne. Toss gently with your hands to mix all ingredients thoroughly. Spoon the squash evenly into the prepared dish and pour the heavy cream over. Cream should be distributed throughout the gratin—tilt the dish if needed.

Top the gratin with remaining crumbs; bake 20–25 min., or until crumbs have browned and cream is reduced. There should be no excess cream in the dish.

“Sweat” squash to help purge excess moisture. Sprinkle it with salt, then drain for 30 minutes in a strainer placed over a bowl, shaking strainer occasionally.
