Beef Zucchini Party Casserole

Next time you make Lasagna for your family and friends, try making this good enough for a party,
Beef Zucchini Party Casserole, low-carb recipe too. 

You’ll find it’s hearty without all the pasta, rice, or potatoes and if served with a crisp green salad, it will fill you up and not out!

Beef Zucchini Party Casserole

Beef-Zucchini Party Casserole is an old family favorite that I like and make just for me. 
 Just like my Berry Low Carb Trifle, it’s gone by the end of the night! Who knew…

Yeah! Still getting lots of squash… and for this recipe you need about 3 medium.

Brown, season and drain fat from ground beef.

Another little garden guy, you’ll need several and / or green bell peppers.

Chop zucchini, onion, and peppers and steam until tender and mash.

Mix eggs, cottage cheese, parsley, and Parmesan cheese.

Layer ground beef and top with zucchini, onion, pepper layer.

Now add a layer of shredded cheddar cheese

Add the cottage cheese layer…

Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese if you’d like. I do!  Now bake in a 375 degree oven 45 minutes or until set.

Now, for those low-carb life-stylers, let me know if you’d like more variations on this main dish meal! Serve with lots of love and I hope you like it as much a we do.

Beef-Zucchini Party Casserole

Prepare 1st Layer:
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 tsp. seasoning salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
Cook meat and seasonings in skillet until meat is not longer pink. Drain well and spoon into baking dish.

Prepare 2nd Layer:

  • 3 zucchini squash, sliced
  • 1/2 cup green chili peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, (optional)
  • 1-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
Steam squash, peppers and onion together. Drain any liquid and mash well. You can use butter if you’d like it creamier. (I don’t like to add more fat, and I don’t miss the flavor). Spread over meat mixture and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. I leave out the butter, but bring on the cheese!

Prepare 3rd Layer:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups creamed cottage cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. parsley
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Beat eggs slightly and stir in cottage cheese, parsley and Parmesan cheese. I like to sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until set. Let it set for 5 minutes before serving. Makes 12 servings.
Enjoy all, thanks for flying by…
