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!

I love this! For those trying to lose weight, which I always am, or cut fat, some easy substitutions can be made. I left out butter completely, sauteeing the zucchini in cooking spray. I used fat-free mayo and fat-free sour cream, and substituted Eggbeaters for eggs. I eliminated butter from the Parmesan mixed with bread crumbs, too, and used a little shallot instead of onion to suit my family's taste. This came out wonderfully, and was simply gobbled down -- not the norm for zucchini around here. Many, many thanks.

Delicious! The only thing I did different was to leave out the breadcrumbs because I am doing the low carb thing. I used 2 large zucchini to equal 4 cups. Great recipe Di Neal - thanks!
