Best Crockpot Recipes ~ Zucchini Casserole

If you are a veggie lover then this crockpot zucchini casserole is for you!


My sister was born with a green thumb. Every year she grows the most amazing zucchini and tomatoes in her backyard and I get the benefits of her hard work (thanks Lin!). Freshly picked zucchini and tomatoes in this crockpot recipe are divine!

If you have a brown thumb (like me) you can get these fresh from your supermarket or from fresh vegetable growers who sell to the general public. 

This would be be good at any time of year but especially during the summer months when vegetables are fresh.



Zucchini Casserole Crock Pot Recipe

Total Cooktime: 4 1/2 hours
Serves: 6

What you will need:

1 red onion, sliced
1 green pepper, cut in thin strips
4 med. zucchini, sliced & unpeeled
1 (16 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. basil
1 tbsp. butter
1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Combine all of the ingredients into your crockpot or slow cooker except the butter and cheese. Set your crockpot temperature to low and cook for approximately 3 hours covered. After 3 hours is up dot the casserole with the butter and sprinkle the freshly grated parmesan cheese over the top and cook covered for an additional 1 1/2 hours on low. 

This zucchini casserole recipe can be eaten alone or try serving it over spaghetti noodles for a complete meal. I would also save some extra parmesan cheese to sprinkle over the top just before serving. Also, some people are not crazy about eating unpeeled zucchini. Then go ahead and peel your zucchini before you slice it. It won't harm the recipe.

Make it Healthy:  To make this recipe more healthy you can use fresh tomatoes instead of canned ones for a really amazingly fresh taste. You can also substitute margarine for the butter. As for the parmesan cheese, you can cut this down (or out for that matter) if you wish but it really helps pull everything together.

I would love to hear your experiences with this recipe including anything you have done to alter it to suit your family's tastes!

Enjoy!
