Garden Veggie Casserole

Prep Time: 25 Minutes

Time to Table: 1 Hour

Serves: 6 (3/4 cup per serving)


  • 2 medium zucchini, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cornflake crumbs
  • 1 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 medium carrots, shredded
  • 15 ounce can Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained


Place the zucchini in a large colander. Toss with salt and let stand in the sink for 30 to 40 minutes to let moisture drain off the zucchini. Squeeze the zucchini to remove as much liquid as possible. Meanwhile, in an 8-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion in hot oil for about 3 minutes. Add the garlic; cook and stir for 30 seconds longer. Spoon the onion mixture into a large bowl. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the empty skillet. Stir in the cornflake crumbs; cook and stir about 1 minute or until slightly toasty. Set aside. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 1-1/2-quart casserole dish with nonstick spray. Stir the cottage cheese, flour, parsley, sage and pepper into the onion mixture. Stir in the drained zucchini, carrots and beans. Spoon the mixture into the casserole dish. Top the casserole with the cornflake mixture. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until heated through. Let the casserole stand for 5 minutes before serving.
