Zucchini Pizza Casserole Ingredients and Recipe
zucchini, peeled and shredded (4 cups)
Half a teaspoon of salt
It takes 2 giant eggs to make an omelet.
Parmesan cheese, grated, 1/2 cup
a total of 2 cups of shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Shredded cheddar cheese equaling 1 cup, divided
One pound of ground beef
Approximately one-half cup of finely chopped onion
1 can (15 ounces) (15 ounces)
Pasta with traditional Italian tomato sauce
a medium-sized chopped green or sweet red pepper
Prepare a 400-degree oven.
Add salt to the zucchini that you have placed in the colander.
Ten minutes of resting followed by a good squeezing should remove any excess moisture.
Eggs, Parmesan, and half of the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses can be added to the zucchini and mixed.
Spread into a 13×9-in. Or 3-qt. A baking dish that has been greased.
Roast for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the beef and onion in a large saucepan until it is no longer pink, breaking it up as it cooks; then drain.
Throw in some tomato sauce and serve it atop the zucchini.
Green pepper and the remaining cheese should be sprinkled on top.
Continue baking for another 20 minutes or until hot throughout.
It Would Be Great if the Zucchini Pizza Casserole Could be Frozen.
A baked casserole can be frozen after it has cooled.
Use after partially defrosting in the fridge overnight.
Take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before baking.
Turn oven temperature up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove plastic wrap from the casserole and reheat on a lower oven rack until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 165 degrees.
Suggestions From the Test Kitchen
This casserole works just as well with ground turkey or Italian sausage.
Please change it to a vegetarian dish by reducing or eliminating the meat and increasing the vegetable content.
The flavor of mushrooms and cauliflower (or a combination of the two) is fantastic when used in small amounts.
This is easy to transport and store for lunches during the workweek.
