Number of Servings: 9

Ingredients

    2 large zucchini squash
    4 Tbsp butter
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 green pepper, diced (optional)
    3 mushrooms, chopped (optional)
    cup sweet yellow onion, chopped
    1 lb hamburger
    1 10-ounce jar pizza sauce (I use Great Value from WalMart) + cup water
    2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    1.5 cups cottage cheese, full fat
    3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    2 Tbsp dried chopped chives

Tips

Original recipe says to use 12x12 dish, but I've always used an 8x8 and that was plenty ...


Directions

Heat butter in 12″ skillet over medium heat. Peel zucchinis and slice, lengthwise, to 1/4 strips with a sharp knife. Cook zucchini in pan until soft, about five minutes, stirring and flipping zucchini occasionally to keep from browning. Remove zucchini to a plate nearby.

In skillet, saute minced garlic, onion and green pepper, chopping, until onion is transparent, 3-5 minutes.

Add ground beef. Cook until browned, stirring and chopping occasionally.

Add jar of sauce. Add just enough water to the jar to slosh around to get the rest of the tomato goodness (about 1/4 cup) and add liquids to the pan. Simmer until liquid begins to boil. Turn heat to medium low and allow sauce to cook down/thicken, about 15 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine cottage cheese, Parmesan and chives. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a 8x8 casserole pan, arrange layers as such:

1/3 of the sauce mixture
1/2 of the zucchini strips
1/3 of the sauce mixture
1/3 of the cheese mixture
1/3 of the shredded mozzarella
1/2 of the zucchini strips
remaining sauce mixture
remaining cheese mixture
remaining shredded mozzarella

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until cheese begins to bubble and turn slightly golden. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes to allow to set prior to serving.
