I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Zucchini Beef Casserole

Is your garden still overflowing with zucchini? Try this low-carb comfort food casserole and enjoy a nutritious meal while getting rid of a couple of those zuccs!  

4 cups shredded zucchini
1 bell pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
4 tsps minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
2 eggs
1 lb ground beef
2 cups tomato sauce
2 cups mozzarella, shredded
1/4 cup parmesan
1 tsp dry oregano
2 tbsps fresh chopped basil
black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp onion powder

Shred the zucchini and squeeze out the extra moisture in a clean dish towel. Then mix with eggs, parmesan, black pepper, onion powder and oregano. Press firmly into an oiled 13 X 9" baking dish. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes.
While that bakes, heat olive oil in a skillet to medium heat and sauté the onion and pepper until the onion is translucent. Add garlic for 1 minute then add the beef and cook through until no pink remains. Pour in the tomato sauce and add the fresh basil. Spoon meat sauce over the baked zucchini layer.

Top with mozzarella and give it a nice sprinkle of dry oregano.
Bake for another 20 minutes.

Let cool 10 minutes before cutting.

Serves 4-6
