This casserole has been on my mind for a while now and I finally got around to making it while camping last week.
Yes, I obviously glamp, not camp. Forget the tent, Mama stays in a trailer with the full hookups.
I took a zucchini, carrots and onion from my garden, threw it into a bag and took it to the lake with me.
Now this, my friends, is a seriously decadent casserole. I ain't gonna lie; you need a salad with this bad boy. You simply cannot eat a plate of this like you eat spaghetti. However, that just makes me love it more because you end up with leftovers for lunch!

Can you see the purple in the picture above? Those dang purple carrots of mine color EVERYTHING purple! Oh my word, they are crazy! They stay purple when cooked, they dye everything they are cooked with, I guess that means they are super healthy!
So remember, this is not something you are going to eat plates of, it's rich and decadent. Make a salad to go with it!
Happy cooking everyone!
Love you more than chocolate!
