I combined two of my favorite vegetables in this creamy gratin to create a family-friendly dish that fits right into your busy schedule. Topped with crunchy Panko bread crumbs and savory Italian cheeses, you'll have this comforting side on the table in under an hour. —Mrs. Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida

"Great recipe, easy to prepare.

P.S. I noticed on off topic some peopled mentioned being put off by the ADLI ad. They must have changed it, I only have seen a small one in some of the corners of the recipe.
A trick my husband taught me was to NEVER look at anything on line that has the word AD any where near it. Saves you getting the cookie."

"Loved it!! Almost followed the recipe as written - I substituted fat free half/half for the regular. I did increase the sauce by adding more half/half. Next time I will decrease the amount of garlic and try sauté the onions & garlic in olive oil rather than the bacon drippings. Trying to reduce the calories/fat where ever possible. Great recipe, Thanks!!"
