Cheesy Zucchini Casserole Recipe

Tender cubed zucchini gets pleasant flavor from a cheesy sauce and cracker-crumb topping. "This fast-to-fix side dish is a great way to use up a big crop of the common squash," says Kathi Grenier of Auburn, Maine. At 35¢ a serving, it's an uncommon value.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2-1/2 pounds zucchini, cubed
  • 1 cup diced process cheese (Velveeta)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup crushed saltines (about 10 crackers)


  • 1. Place zucchini in a saucepan and cover with water; cook over medium heat until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain well. Add cheese, butter, salt and pepper; stir until the cheese is melted.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased shallow 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with cracker crumbs. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 6 servings.
