Zucchini and Rice Casserole

We got so much fresh zucchini and summer squash from family and friends that I had a whole drawer full in the fridge and while I knew I'd make up a few batches of our favorite squash casserole recipe and a few loaves of zucchini bread, I also new we needed a few new recipes to try.

I  finally settled on trying a squash casserole with rice and cheese since those types of dishes tend to go over well in this house and  with just a few small tweaks we eagerly dug into our new zucchini and rice casserole.

My husband claims this was his new favorite recipe!

Here's how to make it:

8 or so cups of sliced zucchini and summer squash
2 cups cooked rice
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons Italian seasonings
1 Tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/4 cup Pepperidge Farm Corn Bread Classic Stuffing mix
Salt and Pepper to taste

Bring zucchini and squash to a boil in a large covered pot then simmer for 20 or so minutes until tender.  Drain.

In a large bowl combine cooked squash with all other ingredients mixing well to combine.

Spread into a greased 13 x 9  baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until cheeses begin to brown and the sauce begins to bubble.

Serve while it's nice and hot!

  1. A great sounding recipe for all that heartily-growing squash so many people have at this time of year - although I admit the one time I tried to grow it, I only got squash blossoms. Maybe a lack of bees? I'll keep this recipe to hand, however...

    1. Yeah I can not grow it either... I did get some small baby squash the one time I tried to grow it but they never made it to picking and I don't know what happened to them.

  2. OHH that looks so delicious. I would eat that as a main dish. Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party - hope to see you next week too. Have a great week.

    1. It would make a wonderful main dish but my boys and husband believe every meal must have meat. LOL.

  3. This looks so good. I am all for recipes that help me get veggies into my husband.

    1. I'm always looking for recipes to help me get veggies into my sons.

  4. I love this combination, it looks like pure comfort! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday, we sure enjoyed your post!

  6. This looks so delicious. Looks like warm comfort food. :) Pinning.
