Zucchini Casserole

4 reviews

Whenever I take this casserole to a potluck or serve it to guests, I get requests for the recipe. It was created by my friend Pat in Kansas City, Missouri, where my husband, Gene, and I lived until 1-1/2 years ago. Our two grown sons still live there. My sister-in-law gave me a gift subscription to CW last Christmas, and I saw the announcement for the zucchini recipe contest—in my very first issue. What a surprise to win!
