Italian Zucchini Crescent Casserole

"I've had this recipe in my possesion for over a year and really wasn't too sure if I would ever make it because I really don't care for zucchini. I could kick myself for waiting so long. If you are looking for a dinner recipe that will knock your socks off...look no further."

Questions & Replies

  1. Can I substitute fresh croissants for the crescent rolls? I appreciate any help anyone can give me as I want to make this croissants. Thank you, Susan


  1. This is a great recipe. My sister, the vegetable queen, says this is better than any quiche I have prepared. Refrigerates well, and is just as good cold the next day. The only thing I changed was to use more mustard on the dough.
  2. This was really good. I used both unpeeled zuchhini & yellow squash. The orignial recipe on Pillsbury wesite calls for a 10 inch pie pan, which I used (big mistake); I think that the Crescent rolls (no need for Grands), could be doubled to cover the larger pan called for in this recipe. <br/>I had a lot of 'juice" to drain off, otherwise, I don' think it ever would've finished cooking in the 10" pie pan before the crust would burn. All in all, I thought it was very good. Used up about 4 squash, added some extra herbs after my draining fiasco. Placed under the broiler to brown right before it was finished, drizzled with EVOO and some Sicilian Bread Dipping herbs. Thanks for sharing!
  3. This is a really good easy casserole to make. It's packed with flavor and great to take for lunches or even cold. However, I did have problems with the recipe but not so bad because I was able to work it out by smoothing the crescent squares out until the fit the pan in a very thin layer. Because I used the shopping list feature when making my list to go to the grocery store it didn't show that I should have gotten a can of the GRANDS crescent rolls. It just showed what was printed on the recipe itself, I suggest changing that in the ingredients list for future users, since I myself use the shopping list feature a lot when I tag recipes to try. However that little bump, did not change or diminish what I thought of the recipe what so ever.
  4. Very good recipe. I used a combination of zucchini and yellow squash. Otherwise, followed recipe exactly. Would like to experiment with different herbs, spices and/or cheeses in the future. Thanks, Jeanette.


My name is Jeanette and I was born and raised in Houston, Texas! I came across this website one day while doing a search on the computer for a really good salisbury steak recipe (which came out great...thanks to recipe# 23811) Since then, I make it a daily routine to log into Recipezaar at least 2 or 3 times a day. I feel like I've viewed every recipe in here but to my amazement I always find myself printing a recipe that I must have overlooked. My Recipezaar collection of recipes has gotten so big that I had to make a special binder just to keep track of all the new recipes that I have printed out. I love trying out new recipes on my husband and to tell you the truth he doesn't mind at all...what a good husband! For a while there it felt like I was cooking the same thing over and over each week. Not anymore though...thanks to all of you and Recipezaar :)
