Oh, that looks yummy.

 

I make a casserole with zucchini and pizza sauce and cheese that is great.  I will add this recipe so that I can switch them out for something different.

@Reconnaissant   Sure.  I don't have a written recipe.  I usually dump cook.

 

I spoon a little pizza sauce  ( Don Pepino is my favorite ) into a greased casserole dish and add sliced zucchini, then cheese and repeat in layers, like you would when making lasagne ending with the cheese on top.

 

I bake at 350 until the zucchini is soft and the cheese bubbly.  Sometimes I add onions or pepperoni for a change, but usually not.

 

This is my gluten free pizza.  I also got my kids to eat their vegetables by doing this.
