Diabetic Zucchini Casserole

This diabetic zucchini casserole is good if you like zucchini! The ingredients are very simple but the taste is very big. This casserole dish has zucchini, mustard, cheese, nutmeg, and green onion. A great casserole combination. I think this zucchini casserole makes eating vegetables a little more tolerable. Give it a try!

Fixed this last night. Took 15 minutes to prepare with doubling the recipe. Family likes it, but we put it on toast. My husband dabbed it with hot sauce to spice it up. He's not always of a fan of my vegetarian meals, but he liked it. It's a tad watery, I would suggest thoroughly drying the zucchini before you mix it with the other ingredients. Overall, I will fix it again. Keep in mind, you have to like zucchini to like this recipe!
