Grandma"s Zucchini Casserole-Giada De Laurentiis

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

This is my version of a recipe I saw Giada make on her show. She puts bread crumbs between the zucchini layers but I think they taste soggy so I just put them on top. I sometimes just use an Italian shredded cheese blend as a substitute for the cheeses.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease a baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Layer in dish zucchini, salt and pepper, cream and cheeses. Make 3 layers. Top with bread crumbs, then butter. Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes.

Tasty! I made some changes...I doubled the recipe and used mild cheddar and mozzarella in place of the other cheeses. I used cream and baked it for 35 minutes, to be honest it needed a little longer to cook so I will definitely go for 40-45 next time. Aside from that it reminded me of macaroni and cheese!! Next time I will bake longer and NOT cut lengthwise, that was awkward to eat that way. I will definitely make again!
