Zucchini Tomato Casseole

© 2023 |

I often make this colourful summer squash casseole during summer months when they are in peak season or when I am looking for something healthy, flavourful and delicious for the family.
This classic summer meal couldn't be easier to prepare. Start by slicing the zucchini and tomatoes (about 1/4-inch thick) and place them in a baking dish. Prepare a Parmesan cheese and pork rind topping (use regular breadcrumbs if you ain't on keto) to scatter over the vegetables. Bake the casserole in oven until the crumb topping is golden and crispy. Enjoy!

  • 2 Medium regular zucchini, cut into 0.6cm / 1/4inch slices
  • 2 Medium yellow zucchini, cut into 0.6cm / 1/4inch slices
  • 3-4 Tomatoes, cut into 0.6cm / 1/4inch slices
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 30 g Pork rind, ground (or regular breadcrumbs if you ain't on keto)
  • 30 g Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
  • 1/3 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp Flat parsley, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Coat the bottom of baking dish with 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil.
  2. Overlap the zucchini, squash and tomato slices in a baking dish. Sprinkle the vegetables with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil.
  3. Combine the ground pork rind or breadcrumbs, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and garlic powder. Scatter evenly over the vegetables.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the toppings are golden brown and juices are bubbling in bottom of pan.
  5. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with chopped flat parsley before serving.

I have tried making it this way, but the veggies always turn soggy and watery in the end for me, not crispy, don't know why. I tried it with sweet potatoes, zucchini, onions, tomato, and never gets crispy in the end. What am I doing wrong?

Chef Mimi 9/8/23 20:34

Just gorgeous! You have some good looking produce there! Love the topping.

Angie's Recipes 9/8/23 20:34

@DEZMONDThe topping is crispy, but the veggies won't get crispy as they are stacked together. If you are looking for the crispy veggies, then should try bake them in a single layer on a large tray.

Perfect way to enjoy vegetables during summer!

Yum, I would love to try this dish. Thanks for sharing. Take care, enjoy your day!

My name is Erika. 10/8/23 13:02

That would make a yummy side dish. Once again, I'm waiting for some zucchini to ripen. But this is such an easy and great idea.

David M. Gascoigne, 10/8/23 13:07

I am pretty sure that we have all the ingredients on hand. You may have just answered the daily question, “What will we have for dinner tonight?”

Carol @Comfort Spring Station 10/8/23 13:47

Squash, tomato and cheese is the perfect combination of flavors

Javier 11/8/23 11:33

This is absolutely the perfect recipe for August in New Jersey, Bernadette, https://newclassicrecipe.

David 11/8/23 16:49

Angie, This casserole looks great. I might even be able to eat it if I removed the skin from the green zucchini. FYI, as per your comment $8.00 is about the cost of a glass of medium cost wine here. Back in the old days, wine tastings were free, even in Napa Valley in California. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Eva Taylor 13/8/23 13:35

What a great way to utilize an over abundant crop of zucchinis and tomatoes. So easy too!

Colorful! perfect summer savory dish

Raymund 18/8/23 02:25

The simplicity of slicing the veggies and layering them in a baking dish, then finishing with a golden, crispy topping, makes it a hassle-free dish to prepare.
