Creamy Zucchini and Ground Beef Casserole

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ShanH

This is from the Sooner Sampler; a cookbook published by the Norman Junior League back in the 80s. This casserole is WAY more flavorful that the ingredients suggest! A lot of bang for very little buck.

Love this recipe, only not very filling so I added a couple cups of cooked brown rice. That did the trick. Also put some French fried onions on top .
