Happy Sunday, I hope you are enjoying your weekend! We had beautiful weather here in Maine. I took a drive into the mountains yesterday to enjoy some of the spectacular Fall foliage. This has been one of the best years for leaf peeping in recent memory! It has also been a good year for my garden. In fact, I have a bumper crop of zucchini. It has been fun getting creative using it in a variety of recipes. I tried something new today and made this Zucchini Pizza Casserole. It was so easy to make, but full of flavor. Everyone loved it, even the kids!

How do I make the Zucchini Pizza Casserole?
As I mentioned above, this is very simple to make! Just preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 13×9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

Dump the zucchini mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with half of the pepperoni.
Then, bake in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with cheese and remaining pepperoni. Pop it back in the oven and bake for about 10 more minutes until cheese is melted. Serve warm and enjoy!
