Zucchini Sausage Bake (Gluten Free)

It must be summertime since I seem to have an abundance of zucchini squash in my veggie garden! My mind is already running a million miles a minute thinking about all the things I want to make with them! I decided to start with a hot dish. This casserole is loaded with flavor and is super easy to make! You can’t go wrong with a cheesy baked casserole right?! The sausage and zucchini make a great pair…..its just a nice one-dish meal! (To make it dairy free, just sub the cheese for soy  cheese. I just used regular cheese because its the lesser of 2 evils, dairy vs soy! haha) And since I had the food processor out, I shredded up a bunch and have it ready to go for the next few recipes I want to try! Of course this is a little premature, since my kitchen isn’t done, but the granite counters are almost done, and then the plumbing!! It will be SOOO nice to have a sink and dishwasher again! Not to mention actual finished counter-space!! LOL  I do what i can for now though, and this was well worth the hassle! Give this one a try and look forward to some more amazing zucchini recipes to come! Enjoy! 🙂
