Zucchini Pizza Casserole

This Zucchini Pizza Casserole is a recipe the whole family can enjoy!


Ingredients


4 cups shredded unpeeled zucchini


1/2 teaspoon salt


2 large eggs


1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided


1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided


1 pound ground beef


1/2 cup chopped onion


1 can (15 ounces) Italian tomato sauce


1 medium green or sweet red pepper, chopped


Directions



  • Preheat oven to 400°. Place zucchini in colander; sprinkle with salt. Let stand 10 minutes, then squeeze out moisture.

  • Combine zucchini with eggs, Parmesan and half the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Press into a greased 13x9-in. or 3-qt. baking dish. Bake 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, breaking meat into crumbles; drain. Add tomato sauce; spoon over zucchini mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; add green pepper. Bake until heated through, about 20 minutes longer.

  • Freeze option: Cool baked casserole; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap casserole; reheat on a lower oven rack until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.
