Zucchini Squash Casserole

It’s super simple, uses extremely budget friendly ingredients, and, did I mention it has cheese!?  Sold.  It’s like macaroni and cheese only except of using noodles it has zucchini.  Oh, and there’s eggs in it.  And you don’t actually make a sauce.  But other than that it’s EXACTLY like macaroni and cheese.  Yeah.

  1. This sounds delightful, Krista! I wish I planted zucchini in my garden this year. I have too many tomatoes, and wish I had too many zucchinis so I could make this. I’ll have to go buy some instead!
