Tried it tonight and it was great! I added two cloves of garlic (minced) with the zucchini and onions, and skipped heating the marinara sauce separately (seemed like overkill). Will definitely make again!
This recipe has a lot of potential. It is a simple and filling vegetarian dish. I only used half an onion and added mushrooms and a couple cloves of fresh, minced garlic while tossing the vegetables with olive oil and it came out pretty good. I used the parmesan cheese, but think I will try mozzarella next time.
I made a couple of changes, instead of pasta I use spaghetti squash, I also added green peppers mushrooms and garlic. I layered it with the spaghetti squash first then I put the marinara sauce then I put Parmesan cheese and then I put the vegetable mixture on top and on top of that I put mozzarella cheese. I also added a touch of lemon pepper, cayenne and celery salt. It was a Maysey
This was pretty good except I overcooked my pasta. Otherwise I liked it. It was a good way to use some of the bountiful zucchini from the garden! I did add a little mozzarella to the layers just because I love cheese!
We enjoyed this but I likely won't make it again. It was a tad dry but we did enjoy it for dinner. The leftovers were tossed out since no one was interested in seconds. Besides being a little on the dry side - you need to be prepared to add some additional seasoning to taste.
Others said this was too dry; before placing the penne pasta in a casserole/baking dish spray with non-stick spray. Place a little bit of a good marinara sauce (Bertolli brand with burgandy wine flavor) in the bottom of the dish add the penne pasta & marinara sauce toss lightly to coat the penne. Then top the coated pasta with any remaining marinara sauce. -- Meanwhile roast the zucchini & onion slices (one onion). -- Top pasta with zucchini & onion mixture then a good parmesan cheese. --- I lastly sliced lengthwise 3-4 roma tomatoes to place on top salt & pepper and/or Mrs. Dash garlic seasoning. Cover with plastic wrap; set in refrigerator overnight. Before baking bring casserole to room temperature bake. Serves 8 with a good Italian salad.
3 zuchinnis of what size? Since the size of zucchini s varies considerably a weight would be a better measurement for the ingredient list. I also found the amount of pasta to be excessive for the 28oz of sauce making the dish somewhat blah. Though I will use the recipe again cutting the pasta in half using more zucchini and Parmesan cheese.
