Meatless Wednesday-Zuchini Casserole

My husband is the definition of the word "carnivore".  He would be happy with steak all day everyday for the rest of his life. I, on the other hand, am more of a borderline-vegetarian, meat for the most part grosses me out and i only eat certain kinds. Most of our meals contain meat due to my husbands need for meat, but because i can't really stomach it and the baby won't touch it; i have established "Meatless Wednesdays" into my weekly meal-planning. For today's "Meatless Wednesday" i decided to go with Zucchini Casserole(sorry,no pictures today)


2 Summer squash,thinly sliced
2 Zucchini,thinly sliced
1bag of mozzarella cheese
4 cups pasta shells
1 sleeve Ritz crackers

Preheat oven to 350. In a large pot cook the squash and zucchini ,5-10 minutes,until tender. While the squash is cooking, cook your shells until they are al dente. In a 9x13 casserole dish layer squash,cheese,pasta and repeat, putting a generous amount of cheese on top. Bake in the oven for 15-20. Take out and cover the top of the casserole with crushed Ritz crackers and drizzle with melted butter. Cook an additional 5 minutes and enjoy!
