Really good casserole! Some tips: I would recommend cooking the zucchini pretty thoroughly, until soft. Maybe it's the type of local zucchini I used (I live in China) or that the pieces were a little large, but the pieces continued to cook some in the casserole and so leached out a bit of water, making the casserole a bit looser than it would've been. Instead of bread crumbs, I used crushed corn flakes with italian seasonings for the topping--yum! And since I was low on parmesan, I used only about 1/4 cup--adding some wheat germ and whole corn flakes to round out the casserole and bulk it up a bit. It turned out yummy!
