Lightened Up Zucchini Gratin

Gratin lightens up a little in this springtime take on a French home cooking classic. I bake zucchini in a lightly creamy sauce of white wine and crème fraîche with tons of fresh mint and thyme and parsley, and top it with a crisp crust of breadcrumbs, Gruyère, Parmesan, and walnuts. Served with boiled baby potatoes, it's the perfect veggie dinner.
