  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add zucchini, yellow squash, green and red bell pepper, and onions; cook, stirring occasionally until slightly softened. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, and flour.

  • When vegetables are tender, drain skillet of excess liquid and arrange in the bottom of a large glass baking dish. Season as desired with seasonings of choice, and stir to blend flavors. Distribute cheese cubes evenly over the vegetables. Pour in the egg mixture, and spread bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until bubbling hot. Remove cover during the last 15 minutes to brown top lightly. Serve immediately.

This is very Atkins-friendly especially if you eliminate the flour and bread crumbs. I cut down on the peppers too and because I'm in Germany and there's no squash or zucchini I just used more onions and some mushrooms and it was great. We also obviously don't have Velveeta but blocks of cheddar work just as well. Read More

I made this for our Memorial Day picnic and although my parents loved it it wasn't a great hit with my grown children mostly because of the noticable egg in it. I took the advice of the other cooks and didn't sauté the veggies and they were just right. I think it is definitely a recipe that can be adjusted easily to be a pleaser...maybe a layer of cream of broccoli soup rather than the egg/flour mixture? I think it would be even better if not for the noticable egg. Read More

This recipe was pretty tasty--I got a ton of compliments. It made a ton too: Enough to feed about 15 people at a picnic. The only change I made was to saute the veggies in minced garlic and I just mixed all the other seasonings in the egg mixture. I gave it 4 stars because I thought it was kind of watery even if after I drained the excess liquid from the veggies AND patted them dry. Next time I might just try baking the veggies in the casserole instead of sauteing first. Thanks for sharing:) Read More

This was very good and easy to prepare. I didn't cut the onions small enough so they didn't get cooked through. So next time I will pre-cook them before I assemble. Read More

This is fantastic! We can't get enough of this casserole. I've used many different veggies and it always turns out great. Also I usually add small apple bits -- it's a surprising taste that works well with the recipe. I usually just toast some bread for the bread crumbs and use half and half instead of heavy cream. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More
