IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING TO FIND CREATIVE WAYS TO USE THE ZUCCHINI FROM THE GARDEN, THIS EASY RECIPE FOR ZUCCHINI CASSEROLE RECIPE WITH TOMATOES WILL MAKE YOUR DAY!
Zucchini Casserole Recipe with Tomatoes:
I love zucchini. It is so versatile because you can use it in main-course dishes, in side dishes and in desserts and breads. That’s a lot of bang for your buck. In addition, zucchini is relatively easy to grow here in the midwest. HINT: Pick your zucchini when they reach a medium size. That way, your zucchini will remain tender.
The above ingredients really compliment. If you have fresh tomatoes from your garden, you could use those instead of the canned stewed tomatoes. I would just roughly chop up about 3-4 large tomatoes instead. I made this recipe in the early stages of my garden, so my tomatoes had not matured yet. Either way makes for a delicious dish.
The one issue I have had in the past with growing zucchini is an infestation of squash bugs as the summer months progress. That is why you have to be very diligent when you are growing a garden. Bugs can take over very quickly. You need to check your garden every day, or at least every other day for the presence of these predators. It is also important to trim any dying leaves from your plants. This also discourages bugs.
Your whole family will get on board for this delicious side-dish recipe. You will find that Zucchini Casserole Recipe with Tomatoes becomes a staple recipe at your house.
