Zucchini & Sausage Stovetop Casserole

Gather zucchini from your garden or farm stand and start cooking. My family goes wild for this wholesome casserole. We like our zucchini grated, not sliced. —LeAnn Gray, Taylorsville, Utah

    Surprised at how tasty this was! I added a pinch of sea salt and minced garlic instead of the garlic salt. So happy to have another great zucchini recipe.

    Easy to make and tasty! I’ll definitely be making this again. A full meal in one recipe! Add some garlic breadsticks.

    Loved It! Original recipe is perfect the way it is. I didn't have any ground pork and tried it with hamburger and threw in some old bay. Not as good as it is with pork. It's a keeper!

    This recipe is now a favorite and will be worked in regularly. It came together in under 30 minutes and was so easy! I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes instead and used spicy Italian sausage. I also added 1 tsp of garlic, 1 tsp of parsley and cut the salt to 1/4 tsp. It came out so flavorful and robust. My boyfriend is a personal trainer and agreed this recipe is a must on a busy week night! Plus it meal preps so easy!!! I love it! Thank you for a lovely dinner!!

    Wow! I knew this would be tasty, but it was really a big hit here! This will definitely go into our rotation. I used bulk mild Italian sausage in it and Seeds of Change ready to serve brown rice. The zucchini I had was quite large so I only used one in it. Thank you for a delicious dinner!

    Little bland. Will spice it up a bit next time. Easy to fix.
