With a few amount adjustments this turned out ver well, I doubled the complete recipe as I was making this as a take-home meal for DS, did some spice adjusments and increased the garlic way up, I uses 2 long thin zucchini for this and that worked quite well, used Stove Top stuffing mix, I also added in 2 jalapeno peppers with the onion and garlic for heat, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
YUM!!! This gets my vote for best zucchini recipe. I almost goofed on the stuffing mix, but as a reread the recipe, I "got it" that I was to just measure out dry stuffing mix and sprinkle it on top of the veggies, kinda like a crumb topping only better. I did use 2 cups of peeled and diced fresh home-grown tomatoes instead of canned and I may have been a little generous with the cheeses as I eye-balled instead of measuring. I made this recipe with the idea that it would be a veggie side dish for two meals, thereby serving 4. It didn't work out that way, because DH and I both went back for seconds, so it only served 2 for us. I'll be making it weekly until a frost kills my tomatoes, basil, and zucchini.
I loved the flavour of this casserole- the zucchini and chicken stuffing went really well together. I also wasn't sure whether to make up the stuffing mix first or use it dry, so I mixed it with the water, let it set then spread it over the top. We'll make this often!
Wonderful!! Made this recipe for the teachers at my son's school during their conference night and came home with an empty casserole dish. I tripled this recipe and it all worked out perfectly. The only slight change was I used a herb stuffing mix as I really wanted this to be a vegetarian dish for them. The only thing that threw me was whether I was to use the stuffing mix dry or make it and then top the dish. I went with dry and to make sure it gathered moisture I mixed it in a bit with the casserole so it would pick up moisture from the tomatoes and this method seemed to work. I was just really concerned about sprinkling dry mix on top without adding some moisture. Definitely a 5 star recipe. My son was upset that the whole casserole went to the school so I know I'll be making this again for our family too. Tagged in Potluck Tag game.
