Zucchini- Mom's Favorite Way

Recipe by SB61287

Close family friend who has shared many great italian recipes gave this to Mom years ago. Still our all time way to cook zucchini. Up to you about how many layers to use. You can use italian seasoning in place of oregano, if you like.

Yum! This was a great way to cook zucchini. I loved the onions and bacon. I also really loved the tomato base from the ketchup. I used an 8 by 8 casserole dish and it seemed to be a good size. Congratulations on your win, SB6! :)
