This is such an easy, quick dish to fix! And, now that it’s actually cooled off here (and the thought of heating up the house by turning on the oven doesn’t make me shudder), I’m so excited to start making it again! This cheesy zucchini bake makes for the perfect side or even vegetarian main dish! And, in our house it’s actually known as “Cheesy Kazoonies”! 🙂
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce
- shredded mozzarella (at least 1 C)
- 4-6 zucchini
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Slice zucchini into about 1/4 slices.
Can’t wait to try this! Always looking for ways to get my kids to eat vegetables! Lorie @ Reading Confetti
This sounds really yummy! Thanks for the recipe Sara! By the way, my husband is a Michigan fan and wanted me to tell you welcome to the Big 10. He saw that your team didn’t do too hot, last week :o)
This looks great and not what I expected! I’ll definitely be trying this here at our house!!
I am so excited to cook this for my husband tomorrow.. it so difficult to make him eat his vegetables. For added nutrients I always add extra LEFTOVER vegetables to the sauce (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, onions peppers or mushrooms). I puree them up and toss it in the sauce- and he’s none the wiser. Thank you for sharing 🙂
Has anyone ever tried this in a crockpot? I would love to try this for Christmas Eve and cook it while we are at church!
I’ve never tried it in a crockpot (it wouldn’t need very long I don’t think). But, if anyone tries it, I’d love to know if it worked!
I JUST LOVE HOW EASY IT IS AND MY GRANDKIDS LOVE IT.
That’s awesome to hear! Thanks for commenting!
I would think that is a good idea with a removable crock so you could put it in the oven to finish off the top just for added effect.
Has anyone tried adding ground turkey
I haven’t, but I bet that would be super good!
I made this & loved it! Such a good recipe. Making it again this week!
I made this yesterday & I have to say it was delicious! I was a little leery how it would taste since zucchini is somewhat bland & watery, but I added Italian seasoning & garlic powder to each layer, & made a meat sauce adding a 1/2 c. of Ricotta Cheese. You will see a bit of moisture in the dish, but once it cooled, it thickened up a little. My husband even devoured it. Will be making this again in the future. Wonderful recipe! Thank you! 🙂
So glad, Suzy! Thanks for the feedback!
What kind of sauce did you use? Haven’t seen this sauce.
Any jarred marinara sauce is fine – whatever kind you like!
