Baked Zucchini Casserole

This Baked Zucchini Casserole is one I have been making for years. We love cooking with zucchini and the prices for zucchini are great this time of year. Casseroles are so under rated. While they are popular in the fall and winter, I believe they are good any time of year. They are especially great for preparing ahead of time and warming up later. They are also great when you have family members home at different times and need to warm up their dinner later.

What I also like is that this casserole does not have canned soup in it. While I certainly do not mind canned soup, I feel that a lot of dishes made with some soups tend to taste similar after a while. You can make this recipe with either green or yellow squash or, both to make it colorful.

Zucchini and mushrooms make this casserole so tasty and healthy!


You basically, just ground the meat,

I am sharing this at Meal Plan Monday.


  1. I don’t eat a lot of zucchini, but that casserole looks really good 🙂

  2. LOVE it. We always get so many zucchinis by the end of summer. I love to mix them with noodles. And meat, of course. I’m so in.

  3. I LOVE how easily this one-dish meal comes together. I agree with you about canned soups and thank you so much for NOT including one!
