Zucchini Casserole | Baked Zucchini
Make zucchini pasta your keto best friend
Zucchini spaghetti, zucchini pasta, zoodles, courgette noodles – call them what you will, but they’re a great low-carb substitute for noodles and pasta on the Keto diet. And they’re no less delicious. First things first: you don’t need any special equipment to make them. Before I invested in a hand-held spiralizer, I used my vegetable peeler to make the pasta, so this is more appropriately called zucchini fettuccine, but what’s in a name? This zucchini casserole recipes is low on carbs, gluten-free, and can easily be made vegetarian as well. With its crisp, golden cheesy crust on top, layers of meat and veg and more cheese inside, it’s a great dinner staple and your kids will love it too.
If you don’t fancy a bake, and you’d rather have a pasta/noodle dish, take a look at our pesto zucchini spaghetti and our keto alfredo fetuccine for more zoodle ideas; you’ll be surprised how versatile this fruit can be. That’s right, did you know zucchini is a fruit?
A cheesy, tomato-ey baked zucchini casserole
Our baked zucchini casserole is going to tomato-based, and I would recommend using our recipe for the marinara sauce. While I’ve used some salami that I picked up on holiday, it’s pretty much up to you what goes into this casserole. You can use meaty options like left-over shredded chicken, ground beef or pork, or perhaps some prawns or calamari. If you are vegetarian, you can use spinach, mushrooms, broccoli… any veggies you like. Customize it to suit your needs and this will be a perfect keto meal. Don’t skimp on the cheese either; the best part of this dish is cracking through that golden cheesy crust on top. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be fighting for the bits of browned cheese in the corners of the dish!

Thank you for the kind words 🙂
Made the baked squash fettuccine for dinner. It was awesome! Thanks for sharing your ideas!!
So kind sharing your inventive knowledge and skill. Much appreciated 🙂
I made the Baked Zucchini Casserole. I thought the video said to bake it at 200 degrees for 10 minutes but after 10 minutes it wasn’t even warm yet. I had to turn up the heat and cook longer. Mine came out a little watery but delicious. Did I hear the time or temp. wrong?
You probably did 200F, it’s 200C which is around 392F I think.
Delicious, and so easy. Thanks! Love listening to you express how “yummy” the meals are, lol.
It makes my day revisiting this because of your reminder post on your FB group. Thanks! Love twisting this recipe to my whim of the day! mmmm
Tried this today, substituting the ham with some pan-fried broccoli and mushroom. It tasted yummy but didn’t exactly come out as a bake. The insides were really runny and I couldn’t cut it into pieces. It didn’t matter to me but I would like to do it perfectly for others. Any ideas why this was the case?
Love your recipes thank you they r so easy
Eating this as I leave my comment. This is so good! I did swap out the salami for ground Italian sausage and added a little garlic and red pepper flakes… one of the best things I’ve eaten that includes a veggie!
Just made this tonight! Awesome! I had not tried zucchini with red sauce and this was wonderful. I swapped out the salami for grilled chicken that I had on hand and used a small can of Hunts roasted garlic sauce, only 3 net carbs. Per serving with no added sugar. Mozzarella and Parmigiana cheese on top. Perfect! Zoodles did well in place of pasta and I enjoyed it. Thank you!
