Directions

  1. Combine the rice and water in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Cook sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring until evenly browned. Drain excess grease. Stir in zucchini and tomatoes, and cook until tender. Stir in rice, mushrooms, and cheese. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish, or a 2 quart casserole dish.
  4. Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned and bubbly.

Absolutely delicious! My prep time was definitely more than 30 minutes, even with my daughter's help (although probably due to my substitutions), but well worth the effort. I used part sweet, part hot turkey sausage, lots of minced fresh garlic cooked with the sausage & onion, fresh mushrooms (added with zucchini & tomatoes). I used brown rice, doubled the amount as per others' suggestions, and lots more than a pinch of oregano. I also followed another reviewer's suggestion to remove the mixture with a slotted spoon and allow the liquid to reduce. Per my family's tastes, I used a mixture of shredded parmesan and mozzarella in place of the processed cheese, then topped with more shredded mozz. Only needed about 30 to 40 minutes in the oven. Everyone raved! Thanks Mandy!

We loved this recipe! Made some adjustments though. Used old cheddar intead of processed cheese and hot italian sausage for a little kick. We actually prepared it in advance and froze it for a quick weeknight dinner. Worked well enough. Will definately make again!

My neighbor brought me a huge zucchini. I made this recipe, and what a feast! The taste is delicious. It takes a little time to make, but I think it's worth it.
