This is like a zucchini pancake recipe put into a casserole only easier. I used less baking mix and just the egg white. Will make this often.

I just made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious! I'm not a fan of spicy foods so I omitted the jalapeno pepper. Next time I might put in a little more cheese since I feel almost everything could use a little more!

Small servings for 2. I doubled it and served 3. Tasty, not too spicy. Perfect weeknight vegetarian dinner.

I did not shred the zucchini but instead cut them into small wedges.I also doubled the amount of cheese called for. I let the casserole bake 5 minutes longer.
