Zucchini Tomato Casserole

Even people who don’t like zucchini can’t seem to get enough of this full-flavored side dish. I always bring it to our family gatherings and potlucks because it goes well with any entree. —Cathy Johnston, Ranchester, Wyoming

  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 6 medium zucchini, diced (about 6 cups)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup cubed process cheese (Velveeta)
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • In a large skillet, saute zucchini in 2 tablespoons butter until crisp-tender; drain well. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Stir in the zucchini and remaining butter. Transfer to an ungreased 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.

    Very good. I used yellow squash, sweet onion and cheddar jack cheese because that was what I had on hand. I also made 1/2 recipe. I will be making this again.

    I make a very similar recipe, except I slice the veggies. It takes a little longer to bake but I like it the slices better. Very good.

    Can this be done in a slow cooker? If so, how long. I will be putting it in a 9x13 casserole slow cooker. Wanting to make this for Thanksgiving but have very limited room in oven for another baked dish. Thanks for any feedback.

    Really did not care for this. Texture more then anything.

    Loved it! Used a pint of cherry tomatoes instead of 2 medium. I didn't have dried minced onions, so I sauteed 1/2 cup chopped onion. Very delicious!!

    Very tasty The tomato made a nice change to the flavor and color of the zucchini casserole. I sautéed the zucchini with olive oil and pepper and did not add any butter (or oil) to the mixture before baking. I also just cubed the bread instead of using soft crumbs. Will definitely make this recipe again.

    Didn't have Velveeta so I doubled the shredded cheddar. Also, used Panko bread crumbs. They were nice and soft after the dish cooked. Delicious!

    I made this recipe for a special dinner I hosted for widows in our congregation. Everybody loved it! This recipe is excellent and easy to make. (thumbs up) :^)
