Another delicous recipe...thanks Lovina!

The other day, I came across a recipe I cut out of the Amish Cook column sometime last summer and lost.  It is called "Zucchini Beef Bake".  Since I had some little zucchini and some white mushrooms in my frig that needed to be used up, I decided to make it for supper.  It was a big hit, even with my husband and kids.  I halved the recipe and made it in a 8x8 baking dish for us, but today I only have a toddler-sized portion left.  Mmmmm.... zucchini is my FAVORITE food.  If you have a windowsill herb garden, it is great with the fresh herbs.  If using fresh, double the amount of herb.

Zucchini Beef Bake

  • 3 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms (if using fresh mushrooms, I suggest doubling the amount as they cook down a lot)
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cheese

Saute zucchini and mushrooms in oil until tender.  In separate skillet, cook ground beef, onion, and green pepper.  Drain.  Stir in tomato sauce and seasonings into beef mixture.  Layer half of the zucchini mixture in the bottom of a lightly greased 13x9 pan.  Spoon half of the ground beef mixture over, then half the cheese.  Repeat with a final layer of zucchini, then final layer of beef.  Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake an additional 5-7 minutes.

Gee, that sounds really good! I can't wait for my garden to grow. Zucchini is one of the few things that tend to grow well in my little plot.
