Zucchini Casserole - Delish!





Zucchini Casserole

The end product - ridiculously good

Ingredients

1/3 cup uncooked long grain white rice
2/3 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
1 1/2 pounds zucchini, cubed
1 cup sliced green onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/4 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
2 cups of your choice of cheese (we used feta and cheddar)

Directions

Combine the rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, until rice is tender.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a shallow 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
Heat the oil/butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the zucchini, green onions, and garlic 5 minutes, or until tender. Season with garlic salt, basil, paprika, and oregano. Mix in the cooked rice, tomatoes, and 1 cup cheese (Feta). Continue to cook and stir until heated through. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese (Mozz).
Bake uncovered 20/30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

(Modify into a Non-Veggie dish - which I did at the same time as this one - by organic or local chicken pre baked with skin and in butter - shredded and mixed in before baking into casserole)

LUCAS FARM

Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens
