I'm not a huge fan of zucchini, but like everyone else, I seem to end up with an abundance of them from the garden. I found this recipe on another site (can't remember which one) and I really enjoy it, though I can't say its all that healthy. Gotta love the cheese!

This made a very good side for our steak dinner. I also sauteed my onions a bit in the butter before adding to the bread cubes. Opted to add some minced garlic then and skip the garlic salt, added a little over half a teaspoon of salt instead. I had a nice loaf of French bread that I cubed. Flavor was wonderful, zucchini was done perfectly. My only complaint would be that the dish was a little oily. The kids ate some which is more than what they normally do when zucchini is on the table. Progress! I think I may have to play with this one again in the future with different cheeses and a little less butter. Thanks for sharing Kim! Made for BEV Tag.

I have lots of zucchini, so I doubled this. Glad I did! It's a delicious way to use zucchini. The veggies aren't mushy or over-sauced. I made this as written, but stirred half of the cheese right into the casserole. This is a great way to introduce little ones to zucchini. Thanx for sharing this; it's a keeper!

This was a nice way to use my 1 zucchini. I halved the recipe and it turned out so nice! Thank you for posting! I did cut the baking time just a little since I halved it.
