Notes

  • Substitute white or yellow onions for purple, if desired.
  • For a dose of healthy fat, use olive oil to saute your veggies instead of butter.
  • If you are looking for a cheesy zucchini tomato casserole, add extra Parmesan cheese!
  • Be sure to let the zucchini casserole sit on the counter for 10 minutes before serving to let it cool and thicken slightly.
  • The original recipe calls for the tomatoes to be peeled. If you prefer to go this route, go for it!
  • I like the extra liquid in this zucchini onion and tomato bake; however, you can remove the seeds and liquid from the tomato before sauteing. This will result in a thicker casserole.
    • I like to sop up the extra juices with a piece of bread and butter, just like my Grandpa would do.
  • We've got plenty of other zucchini recipes including this Ground Beef Zucchini Casserole
