Grandma's Zucchini Casserole

This is SO good. Zucchini, tomato sauce and globs of yummy cheese.This is not a recipe that needs to be measured exactly, so I will be very general.



  • fresh zucchini, sliced and pan cooked in olive oil until softened)
  • tomato sauce (I prefer Prego traditional style)
  • mozzarella, Swiss, Asiago, and Parmesan cheese, sliced or shredded (or your personal favorites)
  • Chopped onion, to taste
  • Garlic, oregano, sun dried tomato, and red bell pepper, as you please
  • Hot or sweet Italian sausage, browned (optional)


Cook the sausage first if you are using it. Then fry the zucchini, onion, red bell pepper, and garlic in the drippings until LIGHTLY browned or soft. (Depends on your taste)

Layer the casserole with tomato sauce, zucchini, sausage, cheeses, and other ingredients. Bake at 325 degrees F, until cheese bubbles. Yum!

This sounds really good to me! But I have a question. You say tomato sauce, but say you prefer Prego traditional style? Prego is spaghetti(or pasta) sauce, unless they make a tomato sauce I've never seen.


Did you mean pasta sauce, or do you use tomato sauce? I guess it wouldn'nt matter which to use, except for the spices in the sauce, I just wanted to be sure before I try this. Thanks!

I meant pasta sauce, though tomato sauce would also work. I really prefer the richness of the Prego sauce as opposed to other sauces.
