Just had this tonight. It was winner. Since I do not have children to feed I really spiced it up. Also I added more veggies for health reasons. I used a hot turkey saugage thinly sliced. When I was sauteing the zucchinis I added mushrooms and spinach. I also used about 3 times more garlic and added red pepper as well as black.
I think kids would love this dish as written. Dh and I liked it but I also spiced it up and used goat cheese and feta rather than ricotta and cottage cheese. Next time I'll add the final layer of mozzarella just in time to melt it. Thirty-five minutes turned it crispy. This recipe is my idea of comfort food.
This is comfort food to me. It was delicious. Will make again!
This pasta dish is amazing! It tastes sooooo yummy with all of the different layers melting into one another and creating such a great taste! The cheeses with the pasta sauce, pasta and zucchini plus the seasoning and onion make for a wonderful dish! I loved how easy this was to put together and how nice it looked and tasted! I will certainly make this again. For me, though, another cheese with the mozzarella in the topping would have made this even better as somehow the mozzarella didnt brown that nicely and remained rather gooey.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, SaraFish!
Made and reviewed for the Zucchini Game in the Spain/Portugal Forum May 2012.
I gave 4 stars because I made some changes. I added some cooked Italian sausage & garlic. I didn't use cottage cheese or mushrooms. This was delicious, what an easy casserole with the potential for many additions of ingredients. Thanks
This dish is DELISH! Please, don't give it a miss! Added garlic at step 8! For comfort food, thisis GREAT! Used fat-free spinach ricotta, added colour, true! Eggplant pasta sauce was a bonus too! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!!
