Zucchini in White Sauce

posted in: Recipes | 5

It is zucchini season and time to come up with a different recipe for using it up. For this casserole I used a white sauce and chopped zucchini. I used my scalloped potato recipe for inspiration.

I started with a medium sized zucchini. I forgot to measure it before starting so I will be a guesstimate, if that is a word. Zucchini is low in calories, but I’m not so sure once you add the sauce.

Ingredients:

  • medium zucchini
  • 3 tsp butter
  • 7 tsp flour
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 1 3/4 cup milk

For this recipe I peeled the zucchini but you really don’t have to. Cut zucchini into small pieces and add to a casserole dish.

I generally make my own white sauce, and did for this recipe, but if you want to cheat a little and get things done quicker you can buy a Bisto parsley sauce. I purchased mine at a favourite British store of ours in Cobourg, Nessie’s.

Melt butter in pan, add flour and mix well to form a roux. I add a small amount of milk to a jar and add the roux and give it a good shake to mix in well. Pour back into pan and add rest of milk and stir constantly until sauce thickens.

ready to bake

Bake at 400 F for about 35 minutes or until the zucchini is soft. Cool for a few minutes before serving.

Presto, you have a lovely vegetable dish to serve for dinner.

For a variation of this recipe you could add cheese to the sauce. The next time I think I will add some sliced carrots and/or beans to make the casserole more colourful.
