Zucchini Rice Bake

I've been experimenting with zucchini dishes as of late.  Our zucchini plant that produced about 5 zucchinis earlier in the year, up and died on us.  But it made a miraculous recovery and is producing again!  So now I'm making zucchini bread and trying out all sorts of new things as well.  Here is one of the new concoctions. 

What You Need:
  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 bag of quick cooking rice
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 banana pepper, chopped (Any kind of pepper is fine, this is the only thing I had in the garden that day)
  • 1 can Italian diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
What You Do:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

Prepare rice according to package directions.

Brown beef.

Chop vegetables.

Combine beef, rice and vegetables in baking dish.  Pour tomoates in and give it a stir.  Season with salt and pepper.

Top with mozzeralla cheese adn bake for 30 minutes.
