Zucchini Casserole


Good Monday morning ! I thought I would share one of our favorite ways to eat zucchini ..
You can make this either on top of the stove , or start it on top of the stove then put in the oven.. To make this I used 3 pretty big zucchini ,( not the huge ones) and one yellow squash. I peeled and chopped them and put them in the pan with about 2 tbsp. olive oil and 1/4 of an onion( chopped) After it cooks for awhile , add a couple peeled tomatoes . ( my kids like the zucchini soft , so if you like yours crunchy just don't cook it so long.) Salt and pepper too.
Then I add about 2 Tbsp of butter , some fresh oregano and fresh basil.
To finish it I added a handful of mozzarella cheese , and a handful of Colby jack. Put the lid on the pan , and the cheese gets all melty :) If you want to finish it in the oven ,put it in a casserole dish then add the cheese. This is such a good way to use up a lot of your zucchini .. One of my sons could eat that whole pan by himself , he loves this stuff so much ! I have even frozen zucchini in chunks and used them to make this and it turned out really good , it just tastes better with herbs and tomatoes fresh from the garden !
Picked some more of my zinnias and played with the Rhonna ap on my iphone .. love this photo of my zinnias !!
 
Hope you have a wonderful Monday , let me know if you make the Zucchini casserole !
