Here is the easy zucchini casserole recipe for weight loss:
- 2 medium-sized zucchini, cut in slices or into half-moon slices
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 2 tbsp sliced green onion
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup + 1/2 cup low-fat white cheese (pizza cheese, or shredded parmesan cheese)
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
At first, preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Spray an 8″ x 8″ baking dish with olive oil or non-stick spray. Wash the zucchinis and cut in half-moon slices. Wash basil, spin dry or dry with paper towels and finely chop. Slice green onions.
Next, combine the zucchini slices, sliced green onions, garlic powder, dried thyme, chopped basil, and both kinds of cheese. Stir together, until the veggies are evenly coated with the cheese and the herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Spread onto baking sheet and bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes.
When the zucchini is golden brown, take the dish out of the oven, and add the remaining 1/2 cup of grated cheese. Put the dish back in the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve hot!
