I made this yummy casserole last night. I love recipes that have only a few ingredients. It keeps it quick and simple without sacrificing the taste. For this recipe I used THRIVE freeze dried Sausage Crumbles. I have found that with most of my THRIVE ingredients the suggested method of re-hydration often has too much water and is soaked too long. I usually take a cup or so of water and boil it in the microwave then pour the boiling water over the ingredient just enough to get it wet. It only took about 5 minutes for the Sausage Crumbles to re-hydrate. I did toss them in a skillet for a few minutes to brown the edges of the meat.
These ingredients couldn't get much easier!
After baking the casserole I decided to add
a little shredded Mozzarella cheese.
This made an excellent main dish and we used
the leftovers as a side dish the next day.
1 1/4 Cup THRIVE freeze dried Sausage Crumbles
2 Medium Zucchini
1/2 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
6 Oz Sour Cream
2 Cups Chicken Flavored Stuffing
1/2 Cup Melted Butter
Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease your dish. Brown Sausage Crumbles over medium heat then add zucchini for 3 minutes to warm them up. While the Sausage Crumbles are browning mix together the cream of chicken soup with sour cream. Combine the sausage mixture with the soup mixture in a large mixing bowl. In a medium sized bowl mix stuffing with melted butter. Place half of the stuffing on the bottom of your casserole dish, cover with sausage-zucchini mixture and top with the remaining stuffing. Bake covered for 30 minutes. If desired, remove cover and top with shredded cheese. Bake for an additional 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
