tasty tuesday ~ chicken zucchini casserole

crunchy chickeny goodness
I'm sure right now all your thinking about is how you will possibly get through the most important meal of the year on Thursday. When I was thinking of what to post this week I knew I wanted something that was versatile and cost effective given the time of year. I dug deep into my recipe stash and hit pay dirt with this gem. It's got flavor, lots of veggies and a little crunch for good measure. You can also use leftover turkey meat instead of chicken.

This reminds me of my Mom's stick to your ribs cooking growing up. She could make miracles happen with a can of cream of mushroom soup. When I made this recipe I was smiling the whole time because my Momma was with me while I chopped and stirred and baked.

Thanks Mom for teaching me the the lessons of what makes a great casserole!
