Another great way to use up the fruits of summer, and get my boys to eat vegetables.

  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley, Chopped
  • 2 whole Zucchinis, Sliced

Preparation

Crumble and brown Italian sausage in a pan with onions. Drain.

Very good. Mine was a little watery, but I did add an extra can of tomatoes. I also added one large carrot, finely diced, as a sub for the sugar, and used turkey Italian sausage. Love that this casserole is low carb and that the prep only takes one pan. Most casseroles take two, or even three, pans just to prep the ingredients.
