Creamy Cheese and Courgette / Zucchini Casserole : Low Carb


Using a mix of cheese and courgettes (zucchini) this recipe can make a meal or side dish … it's so creamy, I'm sure you will like it!

This could be a low-carb meal for four ...
Ingredients:
6 Courgettes / Zucchini
1 Cup (240ml) of heavy (double) cream
6 oz. (180 g) cheese (e.g. cheddar)
2 Large (yellow) onions
1.5 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper

Instructions:
1. Pre-heat the oven at 200°C   400°F   Gas Mark 6-Moderately Hot
2. First of all, cut three courgettes/zucchinis into 1-cm wide slices and line the bottom of the baking dish with them.
3. Chop the onions into small pieces and grate the cheese, and put all the onion on top of the courgette/zucchini slices. Additionally, sprinkle half of the cheese around the baking dish. Following this, mix the double (heavy) cream with the salt and pepper, and pour half of the cream into the dish.
4. Next, cut the remaining three courgettes/zucchinis into 1-cm wide slices and fully cover the food inside the baking tray with them.

5. After this, pour the remaining half of double (heavy) cream over the top of everything. Most of it should go through the courgette/zucchini slices, but a little may be left on top. Cover the top of the baking dish with the rest of the grated cheese. 
6. Cook in the oven for about 40 minutes until the casserole has a firm texture, then slice and serve.

Hello Debby, many thanks for your comment.
Both zucchini (courgette) and younger yellow squash can be used interchangeably in recipes and in combination with each other.

Looks so easy and delicious as well. A good replacement for Au Gratin Potatoes for those who used to eat them. Never had them myself though. Perhaps I'll try this recipe soon. Enjoy your day and thanks.
