If you haven’t noticed already, I’ll remind you again…I LOVE zucchini! I try to incorporate it as much as I can into so many dishes. So today’s recipe is for a zucchini casserole. I had it in my archives and hadn’t made it for a few years until now. I forgot just how enjoyable of a dish it is. It requires minimal ingredients and is pretty simply to make. It’s a low calorie dish and you can use reduced fat ingredients if you choose to or not. I make it as a side dish.
- 1 green zucchini
- 1 yellow zucchini
- 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
- 1/2 cup of light sour cream
- a handful of shredded cheddar
- Panko bread crumbs
- Cooking spray
- Extra-virgin olive oil (optional)
Slice your zucchini and add it along with the chopped onion to a heated skillet. You can use a tablespoon or two of olive oil or cooking spray to coat your skillet. Add some salt and pepper and let cook for about 10 minutes.
When zucchini and onions are cooked through add the sour cream and shredded cheddar and mix. You can turn off the heat at this point. Spoon mixture into baking pan coated with cooking spray.
Sprinkle the top with Panko and bake for about 30-40 minutes at 400 degrees. Let cool and enjoy this low-cal goodness!
