2 onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup 2% milk
2 tsp corn starch
1 cup fresh bread crumbs

2 cups grated low fat cheddar cheese
2 cups chopped pecans
1/2 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Zucchini And Sausage Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a wide, 2 quart baking dish, or spray it with nonstick spray.

  2. Put the zucchini in a colander to drain for about 30 minutes, or wrap it in a clean tea towel and gently squeeze it to remove the excess liquid. Put the zucchini in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Heat a large skillet and add both the sausages. Cook until the sausage starts to brown, stirring to break it up. Pour off all but about 3 tbsp. grease. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir in the garlic and cook 1 more minute. Combine the sausage and onions with the zucchini.

  5. Wisk together the milk with the cornstarch

  6. Stir in the milk, the 1 cup bread crumbs, the eggs, the 2 to 3 cups cheese, and 2 cups pecans. Add salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste. Pour the mixture into the baking dish. The casserole may be refrigerated at this point for up to 2 days.

  7. For the topping, combine the butter, the 3/4 cup bread crumbs, and the 3/4 cup pecans. Sprinkle evenly over the casserole. Bake, uncovered, until hot throughout about 30 minutes. Sprinkle the top with the 1/2 cup cheese and return to the oven just until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.
