Reviews for Zucchini Tomato Casserole
"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!"
"We have been making this recipe since it was first published. It is my go-to potluck dish when we are bringing a side dish. I always get lots of recipe requests."
"I used swiss cheese instead of cheddar and home canned tomatoes instead of fresh. It turned out very good and I will make again"
