“I saw this recipe on a local news program. It's very easy to make, and very tasty. I used fat-free croutons and spicy V-8 juice.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly oil an 8x8 inch glass baking dish.
  2. Drop in and even out the croutons.
  3. Evenly distribute the can of diced tomatoes over that.
  4. Scatter the tomatoes with the grated cheese of your choice.
  5. In a saute pan over a high flame, heat the olive oil, then drop in the onion and cook it until it's just transparent.
  6. Drop in the zucchini slices and saute until they begin to wilt.
  7. Season with the salt and pepper.
  8. Pour in the tomato juice, stir it in a cook of a minute or so to lightly reduce it.
  9. Pour the mixture over the other ingredients in the casserole dish.
  10. Sprinkle the top with some breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.
