Sausage Zucchini Casserole Recipe @pinch

We can see why this sausage zucchini casserole has become a favorite of Dawn's family. The mild zucchini pairs well with the robust flavor of the marinara sauce. Browned sausage adds a savory flavor to this hearty dish. Melted cheese on top is the perfect final touch. We opted for a fiesta cheese, but use one your family enjoys. Got this from a very dear friend... she served it to her family as a family favorite and it has become one of mine as well!
