Zucchini Bake


3 lb. zucchini

1/3 cup butter

1 cup chopped onion

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup breadcrumbs (more if mixture is soggy)

1/4 cup (packed) fresh basil
or 1 Tbsp. dried basil

Salt and pepper to taste

additional grated parmesan


Trimmed and cut zucchini into 1-inch pieces and steam until tender, about 10 minutes.

Transfer to a large bowl and mash coarsely with a fork.

Spoon zucchini into a sieve and drain well, pressing down to release excess water.

Place the drained zucchini in a large bowl.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the onion and garlic, saute until light brown.

Add the onion mixture to the zucchini.

Add the eggs, 1/2 cup Parmesan, basil and bread crumbs, stirring to blend well.

Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the mixture to the greased 8-inch square baking pan and bake in 375 deg. oven until firm in the center and brown on top, about 45 min.

Cut into squares and serve with extra parmesan.
