reader recipe poll: zucchini parmesan squares

Zucchini Parmesan Squares

  • 2.5-3lbs. zucchini, chopped in small, thin pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4T. olive oil
  • 1t. salt
  • 1T. italian seasonings
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1/2c. parmesan
  • 1/2c. whole wheat flour
  • parmesan and salt to garnish

In a large skillet, combine the zucchini, onion, and garlic in olive oil.  Add the salt and seasonings.  Saute over medium heat until zucchini is tender and onion is translucent, about 10 minutes.

Drain the mixture in a large sieve.  Return to skillet.  Add the whisked eggs, parmesan, and flour and stir to combine.  Spread mixture in a greased 9×13 casserole dish.  Top with parmesan cheese and a little salt.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, until top is brown.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this dish, and I was really a little nervous.  Dave went to the store for me and found pretty lame-looking zucchini, so he brought home yellow squash instead.  And when I cut it up 2.5lbs of squash seemed like a lot:

I imagined something really squash-y tasting… but was pleasantly surprised!  These squares were crispy on the outside, soft inside, and tasted fabulous!  I really liked them… and am definitely looking forward to the leftovers.  We shared these with friends and one has already asked for the recipe, so that’s a good sign, right?

What’s the last food dish that pleasantly (or unpleasantly) surprised you?

  1. Your dish looks really good, I want to try it. It also looks like you could modify the recipe (e.g., cut in half) to make less if you wanted to.

    I made tomato basil soup last week and I think I am addicted. I made it again this week and am already wanting more. So good.

  2. We made white chicken chili the other night based off the recipe on the back of a Bush’s beans label. It was surprisingly delicious!

    As for a kitchen fail, I had a recipe from my mom for really good Japanese chicken wings that she makes. We tried it on chicken breast instead of wings since we didn’t have them, but didn’t quite know what to do to adjust the cooking time, and the chicken ended up overcooked and dried out. Bummer.

  3. Oh my gosh those parmesan square looks AMAZING! You are a great cook. Thank goodness you found me because I am loving your blog. We are twins….I never share my ice cream or really anything with Billy but I always take bites of his food. As for the wedding cake, brilliant idea.
