My cousin sent this recipe to my mom years ago - it's a family favorite and very tasty. We often do a mix of zucchini and summer squash (depending on what is ready in the garden). I use bulk sausage instead of slices and cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella (it's what my original copy calls for). It's faster if you cook the squash first then brown it with the butter and onion and flour.
I wanted to use up some cottage cheese and various ends of other cheese in the fridge, and this recipe worked very well - quick and tasty. Cheers.
This was great and the whole family loved it too!! Don't pass this recipe. I did not have Italian sausage links to be 'coin sliced' so this is what I did. I had ground pork in the refrig so I mixed up Bec's Italian Sausage recipe. I made enough to add 1 1/2 pounds of Italian sausage to this recipe. I'm really glad I used bulk Italian sausage and that I added 1/2 pound more to this recipe. In doing so it gave loads of meat to each bite. LisaAD, thank you so much for a fantastic recipe. I'll be using the zucchini from our garden this year in yet another great zucchini recipe.
