Zucchini Tomato Casserole is a great way to use up all that extra zucchini and tomatoes in your garden.  This zucchini tomato casserole makes a great side dish with any meal.  I usually put out one to two zucchini plants and a few tomato plants and by the end of the season, I have zucchini overload.  I love freezing zucchini for soups in the winter time, too.  This casserole is a quick and easy dish you can make in the time you are preparing your main dish.  Serve this along with some barbecued chicken or pork chops for a delicious meal.

2 medium sized zucchini, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 or 3 medium sized tomatoes, sliced
2 cups cheese, shredded (I used a combination of cheddar and parmesan) Can use any combination or whatever you like and can use as much as you like)
1 1/2  cups bread crumbs ( I make my own bread crumbs. You can find the instructions for making them here.)
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
In a small bowl mix all the spices and salt and pepper, set aside.  Spray  a baking dish with cooking spray (I used a 9 x 9) add a layer of chopped onion, zucchini slices, tomato slices, cheese, and bread crumbs.  Sprinkle with spice mixture. Continue layering until you run out of ingredients ending with cheese and bread crumbs on top.  Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes.  Enjoy!
Note:  You could add yellow squash to this recipe, too.

    This is absolutely delicious!!! With cooked bacon torn into pieces and added to the layers, it makes a main dish. Fabulous either way. The grandkids love it served over rice.
