Reviews for Veggie Sausage Strata

"I really liked the taste of the recipe. I didn't use anywhere near the same amount of sausage because of the sodium but I did use one of the chicken apple sausages and diced it really fine for more flavor. I also used no sodium bread and as dense as the brand I buy is, it really helped in this recipe. It soaked up more of the water in the zucchini. I was a little afraid it would dry out the casserole but it didn't. Since there are two of us, I made only 1//2 the recipe in a pie plate. I did not make it all and freeze half because zucchini can be very mushy when frozen."
