Delicata-Green Bean Gratin

Peel and slice 1 onion.  Core 2 peppers and then thinly slice.

In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 2 T. olive oil and add the onions.  Saute until they are tender, then add the peppers along with 1 minced clove of garlic.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cook for another 5 minutes, then remove from heat.

Trim 1/2 lb. of green beans and cut into 2-3 pieces.

Cut 2 Delicata squash lengthwise, then scoop out the seeds and pulp.  Slice the squash halves crosswise.

Layer the squash and beans on top of the onion/pepper mixture in the pan, using the beans to fill the gaps between the squash slices.  Sprinkle with 1/2 t. dried thyme plus salt and pepper.

Top the casserole with thinly sliced tomato rounds, then cover them with 1 C. grated gruyere cheese.

Bake at 350 until the gratin is bubbling and the cheese is nicely browned.
