Zucchini Herb Casserole

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Debi Blair McGinness 12

"I've been making this casserole for almost 20 years and it's always a hit. Even my meat-eater husband likes it. Serve with a crusty French bread or soft breadsticks. Leftovers are great in an omelet the next day."

  1. Combine the rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, until rice is tender.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a shallow 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the zucchini, green onions, and garlic 5 minutes, or until tender. Season with garlic salt, basil, paprika, and oregano. Mix in the cooked rice, tomatoes, and 1 cup cheese. Continue to cook and stir until heated through. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake uncovered 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

I am glad I read the reviews on this recipe before making it, because it may have turned out rather bland otherwise. I added 2 more cloves of garlic, tripled the amount of seasoning (except the...

Fabulous recipe! Did as previous reviewers suggested: tripled seasonings (except salt), added 1 more garlic clove and a few shakes of garlic powder, upped rice to 1/2 cup (used brown rice), ad...

This is a great idea, and a delicious way to serve vegetables. With a few alterations, this recipe is wonderful. To make the rice more flavorful, add vegetable stock and about a teaspoon of garl...

Wow! I was quite surprised by this recipe! And I don't even like zucchini! I served as a side dish with chicken. I doubled the rice and spices and cut the cheese in half. I also used olive ...

Cheese + veggies == YUM! I made wild rice instead of white, which gave it a nice chewiness. I used red onion instead of green, 3 cloves of roasted garlic instead of one raw, 1 can of tomatoes ...
