Summertime Zucchini & Tomato Casserole

"This recipe originally came from the cookbook "What's for Dinner?". I've made some changes based on what my family enjoys. This is my FAVORITE way to have zucchini. This is delicious as a side for grilled chicken or fish and is also terrific just by itself."

    What a flavorful recipe! I made it as directed, added 3 chicken breasts (using recipe #125751) on top. I used seasoned bread crumbs because that's what I had and baked it for one hour for the chicken. It made a complete meal with a salad. This is such a nice way to use those zucchini and tomatoes that will go bad if not used. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

    Yummy! What a great blend of summer flavors. I grill a lot and while a green salad is nice, it's great to have tasty alternatives. This is a super compliment to poultry and fish.
