Ingredients

  • 6

    cups zucchini, chopped (approx. 2 pounds)

  • 2

    cups cooked rice

  • 1

    cup white onion, chopped

  • 1

    cup mozzarella, grated, divided

  • 1

    cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated

  • 1

    cup low fat sour cream

  • ½

    cup parmesan cheese, grated

  • 1

    (4 oz.) can green chilies, optional, drained and chopped

  • 2

    tablespoons extra-olive oil

  • ½

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 350º F. Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat and saute zucchinis and onions until tender. 10-12 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Drain off excess liquid, then set aside. In a large bowl, combine cooked rice with green chilies (if using), sour cream, parmesan, 1/2 cup mozzarella and garlic powder, and stir together. Transfer rice mixture to a 9x13-inch baking dish and top with zucchinis and onion. Sprinkle cheddar cheese and remaining mozzarella over the top and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Place under broiler for 3-5 minutes, or until golden browned.
