What was I thinking
to plant more than one Zucchini Plant?
The bountiful harvest is
keeping me on my toes!
It seems that each
time I check,
there are many more
than what I can
It's wonderful to
have such a great harvest.
I've been sharing them,
roasting on the BBQ,
baking them into
On the weekend I created a casserole!
It turned out pretty good......I had all the ingredients
on hand and the time to make it!
Cheesy Zucchini Casserole
Preheat oven to 350F
4 - 6 Cups Zucchini - sliced into 1/4" slices and halved
1 Tbsp. fresh Oregano - chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh Basil - chopped
1 shallot - chopped
2 cloves garlic - minced
1/2 Cup sharp Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix the above ingredients in a bowl. Spoon mixture into a greased 9 X 9 casserole dish and top with:
1 Cup Cooked Ham - diced
1/2 Cup Mozzarella and 1/2 Cup Cheddar Cheese (shredded and mixed together)
1/2 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs moistened with 2 Tbsp. melted butter
Bake for 35-45 minutes until fork tender.
This casserole smelled amazing whilst baking and was a delicious meal served with a crisp salad.
Now what to do with the rest of these
I've been shredding, measuring into
1 Cup piles and freezing them
for future baking.....
What would you do????
Till next time ..... thankful for the Zucchini harvest!
