I don’t make a lot of casserole dishes so I wanted to try a new one using what I happened to have on hand and came up with this Sausage, Zucchini & Rice Casserole. I love the idea of casseroles because it’s so easy to just throw everything together in one dish and let the oven do all of the work.

Sausage, Zucchini & Rice Casserole

For this recipe, I used ground Italian pork sausage, zucchini, cooked rice , tomatoes, garlic, mozzarella cheese, cream of mushroom soup and chicken broth. Start by preparing your rice. Depending on which kind you use this can take any where from 5-20 minutes. I used instant white rice so mine only took about 5 minutes, but you can use brown or long grain. While the rice is cooking, brown the sausage in a skillet on top of the stove; then drain off any excess grease and place in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients minus the cheese to the bowl and mix well. Place the mixture in an oven safe casserole dish, sprinkle with the cheese and bake at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes.

Not only did my family love this recipe for Sausage, Zucchini & Rice Casserole, they ate it for days afterward. It feeds about 6-8 people and even freezes well. You can prepare this recipe the night before and keep refrigerated; then bake when you’re ready to serve.  ~Enjoy!
