I have to admit, when I was making this I thought there would be no way this could taste good together. Boy, was I wrong! It was excellent and a great way to get rid of my overload of zucchini from the garden. Yes, it was a little time consuming, but nothing too crazy. We will be having this again for sure!
Zucchini Rice Casserole
From EatingWell: May/June 2009
We pack extra vegetables into this cheesy baked rice casserole. Plus we substitute brown rice for white, reduce the cheese by half and swap turkey sausage for pork sausage. If you're bringing it to a potluck, plan to reheat it before serving.

My family found this casserole to be exactly that a casserole. When eating healthy, we sometimes have to bury old favorites- or more the feeling that food gave us, but this dish is the perfect blend of comfort and health. I used "Hot" turkey sausage, and would probably skip the jalapenos next time, but I can't wait to play around with other versions- black beans with a taco hint...
This can be a very versitle dish, with melon or spinish salad as a main dish, or it could be a side dish. It would be a welcomed guest at any potluck dinner, or the new star at the holidays. Use your imagination, and see what happens.
I've made this three times already. We love it and it's very easy to make. Chop a few vegies, brown some sausage and add some rice. Yummm
I didn't change anything and loved it. Next time I will divide it in half, and cook one and save the other as directed. This will serve a lot of people.
