  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil. Cook zucchini in the boiling water until soft but not falling apart, 10 to 15 minutes; drain and set aside.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in the hot skillet until the ground beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Add zucchini and chopped green chilies; cook and stir 1 minute more.

  • Combine cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, and egg in a large bowl; add ground beef mixture and cooked rice. Stir mixture until evenly mixed; pour into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is bubbling and the cheese is melted and slightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes.

I loved this! It's very easy to make and was delicious! It could use a little more flavor maybe adding jalapenos instead of green chilies... but overall it was a hit with my family! Read More
