Zucchini Casserole with Cheese

This zucchini casserole with cheese is a budget-friendly recipe made with simple, whole ingredients, that will satisfy even the pickiest eaters! 

Yesterday, I received some yummy zucchinis from my boyfriend’s parents’ garden and I had no idea what to do with them. They were some monster zucchinis! Too bad I didn’t take a photo of them. I can’t believe how amazing their fruits and veggies are. Despite having the most delicious taste, they also grow really big! 🙂

Today, I got the idea to make a zucchini casserole with cheese using one of the zucchinis I received. Yes, just one. A HUGE one! It equals to 3-4 large store-bought zucchinis like I mentioned in the recipe below.

Combined with cheese, this zucchini casserole turned out to be a delicious comfort recipe. I just couldn’t help myself and ate two servings at once! 🙂

This zucchini casserole recipe is super easy to make, you just have to mix the ingredients, put them in a pan and let them cook for an hour. You can serve it with some full-fat, real sour cream on top. Delicious! 🙂

Hi, this looks wonderful, but have a few questions...since zucchini's come in so many different sizes, approx. how many cups for this recipe ? Also cup wise, how much is 300 g. cheese ? And oven temp 180 C , can you please tell me what temperature that would be ? Our ovens are 350 degrees.... What is teleme cheese ? I have never seen this in the USA.... just curious.....

I think it says this recipe is in Romana right ?

Thanks for your help.....

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! The recipe is in both English and Romanian. The main language is English. 1. 3-4 big zucchinis are probably equal to 7-8 cups of grated zucchini 2. 300g cheese is equal to one and a half cup of grated cheese 3. 180 Celsius is equal to 350 Farenheit 4. Teleme can be found in US too, read more here

Hope this helps :)
