This zucchini casserole is so easy to make and a delicious side dish any time of year.
I like it made with half green zucchini and half yellow summer squash, simply because it looks pretty.
This is one of those great tasting, easy to make recipes that used canned soup as the basis for the sauce. It’s nice to see a vegetable recipe like this for a change.
Zucchini Casserole with Summer Squash
- 6 medium zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, halved lengthwise and cut across into 3/8 inch slices (about 7 cups)
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 can condensed cream of onion or cream of mushroom soup
- 8 ounces sour cream
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- 2 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix (1/2 an 8 ounce package)
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
In a large saucepan cook the zucchini with onion in a small amount of boiling water for 3-5 minutes or until tender crisp. Drain well.
In a large bowl combine soup and sour cream. Stir in the carrot. Fold in the zucchini mixture and set aside. In a medium bowl toss together the stuffing and melted butter. Sprinkle half of the stuffing mixture into an ungreased 2 quart rectangular baking dish. Top with vegetable mixture. Sprinkle with remaining stuffing mixture.
Bake at 375°F for 25-30 minutes.
