It hardly gets simpler than this, and the mild flavors of the cheese and squash let the fresh sage flavor shine through.

• Zucchini or yellow squash, sliced lengthwise in 1/4-inch pieces
• Shredded cheese: cheddar, muenster, monterey jack, or mozzarella
• Thinly sliced fresh sage leaves

Preheat oven to 450°F. Place squash slices on a lightly oiled shallow pan and bake about 10 minutes, or until slices look dry and are beginning to be tender. Reduce temperature to 350°F and remove squash from oven. Layer the slices in a shallow casserole with cheese and sage leaves, ending with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and dish is heated through. Garnish with sage leaves and serve immediately.
