  • In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, cook zucchini in lightly salted water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, and place in a large bowl. Stir in the condensed soup, sour cream, onion, and carrots.

  • In a small bowl, mix together stuffing and melted butter. Spread half of the stuffing mixture in the bottom of the casserole dish, add a layer of the zucchini mixture, and top with remaining stuffing mixture.

  • Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden brown.

Our family has been making this recipe since 1980 when I graduated! It's a family favorite... everyone that tries it always asks for the recipe. Good stuff!!! If you enjoy stuffing you will like this. We like to saute the onions & carrots together until tender and then add stuffing. We also steam or microwave the zucchini as it helps to retain it's flavor and this process doesn't have the watery affect boiling does. We also drain the zucchini for a short period too. Enjoy... This is a keeper! Read More

The onion is really overpowering in this recipe, since it doesn't really cook much in the time allotted. I recommend chopping it very small or omitting it altogether. I also found the stuffing mix didn't puff up at all, I don't know if it was supposed to, or not, but mine didn't. As a result, this didn't really satisfy as a main dish... it was just a whole lotta zucchini with some breadcrumbs on top, which seems more of a side dish. Read More

I loved this recipe! My grandmother used to make something similar to this and I have been searching for the recipe. Even my hubby who claims to *hate* zucchini ate it up... Read More

This is a great recipe, but I'd make a few changes. First I use half yellow squash and half zucchini. Next cook the onions with the squash, then the onion flavor won't be overpowering. I also use cream of chicken soup (or cheese if you want it vegetarian). Lastly, I think I use a little more stuffing, probably 8-12 oz. Definetly try this one! Read More

With our zuchinni crop increasing daily, I needed some recipes quickly. This is a delicious dish. I splurged with real butter, but cut back on fat using low fat sour cream & reduced fat cream of mushroom soup with excellent results. Read More

This is a good recipe. I reduced the fat content by using fat free sour cream, light margarine, and low fat cream of mushroom soup. Also, I followed the suggestion of others and used only 1/2 C of onion. Very good. Read More

I made this recipe and took it to a Valentine's dinner at my daughter's in-laws. It was a HUGE hit -- everyone kept telling me how wonderful it was...and her father-in-law went back for second & third helpings! I took some of the suggestions from the reviews I read. I used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom, and layered Ritz cracker crumbs (about 24 crackers) on the bottom of the baking dish. I also substituted the sour cream for a package of softened cream cheese. This recipe is definitely one that I'll use especially when I have to bring a covered dish to a pot-luck dinner. Read More

This was very good. The only thing I might do next time, is to cook the onions a little before adding them to the casserole. I liked the taste, but for those who aren't wild about onions, it was a little strong. I also liked it a lot better the next day. A great sidedish, and a nice way of using up zucchini that threatens to take over your entire backyard! Read More

Great side dish recipe using vegetables. I reduced the amount of butter to 1/4 cup and combined all ingredients together. After baking it for 10 minutes, I also added cheddar cheese. The dish turned out very moist and was a nice side with chicken with gravy. Would make this again. Read More

This recipe is great! I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and nearly everyone told me how good it was and wanted the recipe! I did add a little cayenne pepper to spice it up a bit, and added some cheese on top, before the bread crumbs. Also, put together the night before and baked just before dinner. I'll be making this again and again. Thanks! Read More
