Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground sausage
  • 2 lbs zucchini
  • 1 10.75 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 8 oz container sour cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground thyme
  • 4 cups seasoned stuffing mix
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp butter melted

Instructions

  • Add the sausage to a large skillet, and cook over medium heat. Break the sausage up as it cooks, stirring occasionally.
  • Once completely browned, strain the sausage to remove any excess fat or grease and return the sausage to the skillet.
  • While the sausage cooks, prep the zucchini. Cut the ends off, and then halve the zucchini lengthwise.
  • Cut the zucchini again cross wise to create 1/4" pieces, and add them to the skillet.
  • Stir them into the sausage until evenly incorporated, cover the skillet, and let the mixture cook over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the condensed soup, sour cream, garlic powder, and thyme. Pour this mixture into the sausage, stirring to evenly combine.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, add the stuffing mix & the broth. Stir them together, and let sit just long enough to moisten the stuffing.
  • Lightly spray a 3 quart casserole dish with non stick cooking spray, and scoop half of the stuffing mix into it. Gently spread it out as evenly as possible.
  • Pour the sausage mixture out into the casserole dish, gently spreading out. Top evenly with the remaining stuffing.
  • Drizzle the melted butter evenly out over top of the casserole.
  • Cover the casserole dish tightly with aluminum foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Carefully remove the foil, and bake for an additional 20 minutes- until the casserole is bubbly and the stuffing topping is golden brown.

Notes

We often serve this recipe as is, but if you want to to flesh it out into a complete meal- serve it with white rice & a simple side salad. Maybe even a slice of crusty bread too, for mopping up any juices.
