This is a creative, unusual casserole that’s one of my grandmother’s favorites. It combines zucchini and bell pepper with Cheddar cheese, spices and crispy corn flakes. Bread crumbs can be used in place of cornflakes.
- 8 cups diced zucchini
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 cup cornflakes cereal
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- ½ cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 2 eggs, beaten
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly oil a 9×13 inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine zucchini, bell pepper, cornflakes, cheese, oil, basil, and eggs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread evenly into prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
