Zucchini Squash Casserole.. yumm!

on June 10, 2013

Hello lovely readers!

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been trying lots of new recipes lately.  You see, we’ve been getting a produce delivery every week to our home and it’s really made a difference in the food we eat.  Plus, I get to make my son’s baby food from very fresh produce!  (More on that later!)  With all the summer veggies coming in I decided that today I’d share one of my new, easy favorites.. Zucchini Squash Casserole.  Let me tell you – worth every minute it took to prepare!  (which wasn’t long!)  🙂  Enjoy!

Zucchini Squash Casserole

  • 2 – 3 squash
  • 2 – 3 zucchini (in my recipe, I used golden zucchini – which is the same thing, just yellow in color)
  • 1 med. onion
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic (I like the kind in the jar – just because it’s easier)
  • salt, pepper, Italian blend seasoning (the kind in the spice aisle – not the dressing kind)
  • 1 cup Italian blend cheese (or just mozzarella works also!)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven 400 degrees.
  2. Dice onion and mince garlic (if you went with fresh).  Throw them in a saute pan with the olive oil until it is all softened.  (About 5 minutes).  While this is cooking – go ahead and cut your zucchini and squash.
  3. Spray the inside of an 8×8 square pan (or similar pan) with non stick cooking spray.  Put the onion mixture into the bottom of the pan.  Alternating the zucchini and squash, place them vertically in the pan on top of the onions.  Season with salt, pepper and Italian blend seasoning.
  4. Cover with foil and and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove foil, and yummy cheese and bake another 15 – 20 minutes until the cheese is slightly golden brown.

  6. Carefully remove foil after a few minutes and then dig in!  Veggies are tender, cheesy and delicious!  Enjoy!
