Zucchini Casserole

Zucchini Casserole

à la green bean casserole, but with crispy fried jalapeño topping instead of the usual French fried onions.

We harvested some of the zucchinis from the garden.

I used my trusty Spiralizer to spiralize the zucchinis. Then, salted it and placed it in a colander lined with a towel to absorb the liquids for about 20 minutes while getting the cheese sauce ready for the casserole.

Much like Kohlrabi Au Gratin, this casserole is creamy and cheesy, thanks to heavy cream and cheese; but being conscious of fat consumption, the amount is not too generous, just enough to create the illusion of rich casserole.

And, our local supermarket had French's™ Crispy jalapeños that I wanted to try. Casserole topping seemed the best use for it at this time.

Squeeze out excess water from the spiralized zucchini before assembling in the casserole dish. Make a quick and simple cheese sauce by heating some cream and melting some cheese in it with favorite seasoning.

Bake in a 375°F oven for about 35 to 40 minutes til flavors meld and the cheese is bubbly. Top with the crispy fried jalapeños and bake 3 or 4 minutes more.
