The Zucchini Casserole with Dill will become a new favorite recipe. Fresh zucchini is available year round – this is one of our "go-to" recipes, especially for Passover and during the summer months when zucchini is plentiful.
2 pounds medium zucchini
1 large onion
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
1/3 cup matzo meal
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grate zucchini and onion using large holes of grater or a food processor grating disc. Put both in a strainer and squeeze firmly to remove excess liquid. Transfer zucchini and onions to a bowl. Add eggs, parsley, dill and matzo meal. Season generously with salt and pepper so mixture will not be bland. Mix well.
Put 2 tablespoons oil in a shallow 8-inch-square baking dish. Put dish in oven briefly to heat oil. Add zucchini mixture to hot dish. Sprinkle with remaining oil. Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour or until set. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving. Serve hot.
