    HEP MEP's Note:

    From The Runner's Cookbook printed in 1979. (Used to run!) My ex-dog chewed up my original copy of this book, and recently I was able to buy a used copy. This is one of my favorite recipes from it. I usually double the recipe when making this because 3 servings are just not enough! Prep time includes making the rice.

      A really nice casserole. I used a cup of tomato sauce and it was just right. Also thought it'd be good to cut the zucchini slices thin; mine were too thick and chunky. Everything else is perfect and enjoyable. Thank yu!

      Yummy! I had leftovers that needed to be eaten: cottage cheese and cooked hamburger. So I looked for something to match that. Since I also had two pretty zucchini, this looked the most promising for what I needed to do. Normally I would mix these ingredients (without the cottage cheese and egg) in the saute pan, so I didn't even realize it was a casserole at first. But I'm glad I made it, and made it as written, because this is very tasty! I'll probably stick to my usual everything-in-the-pan most of the time, but I hope I remember this yummy recipe the next time it fits my leftovers!
