Zucchini Pizza Casserole
This is a recipe I came across last year when I wanted to use up the abundance of Zucchini I inherited. It was absolutely yummy!!!!

4 cups shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Favorite pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce or plain tomato sauce
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
Pizza toppings of choice

This time I used red onion on half and Canadian bacon and black olives on the other half.
I also used whatever cheese I had on hand for the topping this is a blank canvas to change to your family's desires :)

Place zucchini in strainer; sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. Squeeze out moisture.

Combine zucchini with the eggs, Parmesan and half of the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Press into greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.

Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add tomato sauce; spoon over zucchini mixture.

Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; add toppings.

Bake 20 minutes longer or until heated through. Yield: 6-8 servings.

I forgot to take a picture before we ate, but the whole family devoured it!!
