I just love to use zucchini as a substitute for ground beef in quesadillas, chili and spaghetti sauce. Just chop into small chunks and sautee.

Guest p.c.

If you make the above oven fried zucc. but slice it lengthwise about 1/4 inch thick, you can layer it with spag. sauce and mozz. cheese and make zucch. parmesan. It is SOOOOO good. Just adjust the points to reflect how much cheese, etc you use. I'm having this for dinner this week!

Here is a great recipe for a Zucchini Tomato casserole that is ALWAYS a huge hit at Thangsgiving and Christmas (and every other time of the year that it is served!)


You layer sliced zucchini and sliced tomatoes in a casserole dish. In between each layer is a mixture consisting of: grated chedder cheese, parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, chopped garlic, salt and pepper.

Layer as follows:


Cheese mixture


Cheese mixture

etc. (Finishing with the cheese). You can put a top layer of sauteed onions and bread crumbs too. Bake covered at 325 F for 30 minutes, then remove the cover and bake another 25 minutes. You really don't need much cheese, just a very thin layer between the veggies to add a little flavour. The only points in this dish is the cheese (and butter and bread crumbs for the optional top layer)


Hope that youe enjoy as much as we do!!
