TRIED ā€˜Nā€™ TRUE: This casserole recipe is great when used with zucchini

---- — This is another recipe from Mary Hunter. I’ve tried this zucchini recipe and it was so good. We all liked it.

Husband Gene had carrots and green onions in his garden, so I used them. You can also use regular onions.

I have another recipe for Zucchini-Pineapple Bake that I use in the fall when there is an overabundance of zucchini, which I’ll share at a later date.

*Note: I put my cheese on top about 10 minutes before it is done. Let cheese melt and brown on top.
