This is one of the recipes I came up with to help me use up a giant load of zucchini! I love leafy greens, they always liven up a dish, don’t they? My zucchini kale casserole might just be a new favorite around here!

Zucchini Kale Casserole Recipe

Zucchini paired with diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, cheddar cheese, and kale. Baked for at least 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly!

Brown the cheese on top quickly using the broil feature of your oven.

This is a great recipe for dinner! My vegetable loving kids gobbled up this casserole. The non-vegetable eater didn’t care for it much though, of course!

I love that you can freeze this casserole. It makes menu planning easy. I just reheat it in my Instant Pot.

The layers get a little messy because I have to move it from a casserole dish to a round pan that will fit into the Instant Pot, but oh well.

Ways to Use up a Load of Zucchini

Once, I ended up with an entire case of zucchini. Given to me by a farm share. I also made Zucchini Parmesan Casserole and Ratatouille.

Another favorite way to eat zucchini is to throw some in a green salad.

If you’re into food preservation, you can pickle, ferment, freeze, or even make canned zucchini to help preserve it.

MSU has some pretty great tips and a unique recipe for preserving zucchini!

    1. Yes, I use a pretty large casserole dish. You can scale it down though. You can also add more zucchini and have less tomato sauce if you wanted. It’s totally up to you. I encourage people to make my recipes their own! So happy you stopped by, thank you. I hope you like the dish!

    1. Hey Renee, this recipe can feed about 4-6 people. The recipe function won’t allow me to place a variance. It should feed about 4 people with maybe some leftovers. It could easily feed 6 people with no leftovers, especially if you serve a salad on the side.

      If you’d like to increase the recipe just a little you’ll need a big casserole dish, or two dishes. I usually use a pretty large casserole dish to feed me and mine.

      This is what I would do if I wanted to make a little more. In addition to the recipe I would just add

      15 oz can of tomato sauce
      1/4 bunch of kale
      1/4 cup cheese
      1 large zucchini

      Hope this helps!

      Thanks for stopping by Renee! Let me know how it turns out!
