2 lbs zucchini
1/2 cup plain white rice
1 cup minced onions
3 Tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tbs flour
2 1/2 cups hot milk
2/3 cup grated cheese (parmesan, mozzerella or your favorite)
a well buttered 6 to 8 cup baking dish about 1 1/2" deep

Grate zucchini, squeeze dry and saute in half the olive oil until
tender. Drop rice in boiling, salted water and cook for 5 minutes
then drain and set rice to the side.

Use the other half of the oil and saute the onions until very
lightly browned, then add cooked zucchini, flour and garlic and
stir well. Cook over medium heat for a couple more minutes. Remove
from heat.

Slowly add hot milk and stir in well. Return to heat and bring to
the simmer for a minute or two while stirring, then remove from
heat. Add in rice and all but 1/4 cup of cheese and stir. Check
for seasoning and then pour into buttered baking dish. Sprinkle
remaining cheese on top.

Place this still-hot dish in a preheated 425 F oven and bake about
20 to 25 minutes until bubbly and the cheese has browned.

You can substitute other vegetables as you wish.
