It is summer time again, at least for another few more weeks… which to me = zucchinis. I love zucchini! Anyone else? Do ya have a good Zucchini casserole recipe? Let me share mine!
My mother actually planted 2 zucchini plants this year one green and one yellow (and no they aren’t just yellow squash). Did you know that yellow zucchini existed, I didn’t! But it is really helpful to keep the zucchinis from turning into baseball bats, because you can actually see them!
So anyway, we have been cooking zucchini around here like crazy! And we have a great option for those of you who want to have a great zucchini recipe… here you go! It has such great flavor, and a nice crispy stuffing top AMAZING!
