Adam's Mom.. Judy's Zucchini Casserole
2 Medium Zucchini (or squash)
8 oz alfredo sauce
8 oz cream of mushroom soup
1 tablespoon of oregano
1 lb of ground meat
2 tablespoons garlic
shredded cheese (I use multiple types, your choice)
half chopped medium onion
sliced chee mozarella
1 teaspoon cumin
Slice the zucchini into 1/8inch rounds
Par Boil the Zucchini..for 2-3 mins and then dry
Brown ground beef w/chopped onions, chopped garlic, cumin, salt and pepper to taste
Pour Soup, Alfredo and Oregano over meat and cook close to boil, but not all the way. Mix it all together. You can also just use all alfredo, or all mushroom. Your choice.
Cook over medium heat for about 8 minutes or until meat is well cooked.
In a casserole dish, lightly coat the bottom with the meat mixture
The line the bottom with the zucchini rounds and don't be afraid to allow them to touch each other. Think Lasagna as you layer this.
Then a nice layer of shredded cheese. I use Jack and some white cheddar
Repeat the layer until you reach close to the top. Sauce. zucchini, cheese
When you reach the top, use sliced mozzarella and make sure you blanket the top with one layer...it holds everything together.
Cook in the over on 350 40 mins...watch it and if the top starts to get too brown, put aluminum foil over it to protect it. again...think lasagna
Remove from over...let sit for about 10 mins...and serve!
Tamera added a salad on the side!
