This was great! I made some changes to suit our tastes by adding garlic, italian seasoning, and a jalepeno pepper, and did not use mushrooms, also only 1 TBS of sugar was used, and I let the cooked zucchini drain in the colander for at least 30 minutes, so it wouldn't be watery. Everybody loved it. Thank you for the recipe!
I took this to a potluck and it got rave reviews. I was really unsure of how much bread crumbs to use, so I used about 3/4 of the container of Progresso Italian style bread crumbs for 1.5 recipes. I might try it with a little less next time, but we really like the added flavor from the Italian style crumbs. Also, I only used about 2 teaspoons sugar for my large batch and it was plenty. Fabulous recipe! Thanks for posting.
I made it with cheddar, & I thought it was a bit bland cheese wise. I think I'll try swiss. DH said I overcooked the onions & mushrooms. I'll leave them more al dente next time. Consistency was good and since DH is on coumidin & can't have leafy greens, it's a good veggie alternative.
This colorful summer creation is quite good. Like Chocoholic Pat I also used mozzarella topped with parmesan. I added salt, fresh rosemary, oregano and basil for added flavor and turkey kielbasa to make a complete meal that would satisfy Dh. I think to avoid watery squash, just let it drain in a collander for as long as possible after cooking it or at least while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Delicious, and for us, it's hearty enough to be served as a main dish. Seems like a large casserole, but it went fast around here. The recipe allowed us to use several things from our garden, including two items I added to the recipe: plenty of chopped fresh basil & 3 finely chopped Goliath Grillers (mild hot peppers). For the cheese, I used a combo of grated Mozzarella & Parmigiano-Regianno. I plan to repeat this recipe. Thanks for a great summer garden recipe, Monica.
Came out pretty good, but I ended up with a pool of water at the bottom of the casserole. Maybe I boiled it too long.
This was really good and fresh tasting. We're "Adkins-izing" and I just couldn't look another salad in the face! Not completely carb-free but this was a nice alternative. I made it without the breadcrumb layer to help cut the carbs. Easy to make and tasty! Try it!
