How to Make Zucchini and Crab Alfredo Casserole

- Zucchini Time: Once you’ve spiralized that gorgeous zucchini, squeeze out any sneaky excess liquid with a cheesecloth. It’s like giving your zucchini a gentle hug.
- Mix: Dive into a large bowl and combine all your ingredients. Remember, reserve 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese for later.
- Layer It Up: Pour that luscious mixture into a large oven pan. Feel free to give it a little shake to even it out.
- Cheese, Please: Sprinkle the reserved mozzarella generously over the top.
- Bake: Bake it uncovered for about 25 minutes, aiming for a tantalizing golden brown finish on the cheese.
- Serve and Revel: Cool slightly and serve with your favorite sides.
Tips & Tricks
- Zucchini: Opt for medium to large-sized zucchinis. The larger ones have a better texture when baked.
- Crab: If using real crab, ensure all the shells are removed.
- Seasoning: Adjust the seasoning based on your preference. The RosaMae Seafood Magic is a recommendation.
