    In small bowl, stir together onion, half of the thyme leaves, the rice, oil, tomato, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. Spoon into casserole; spread evenly. Alternately layer zucchini and squash, overlapping slightly, on top of rice mixture. Sprinkle with remaining thyme and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.

    Cover; bake 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered 10 to 12 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and starting to turn golden brown. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

  • This casserole can be made with either all zucchini or summer squash.
  • Use leftover cooked brown rice or make some fresh for this recipe. You can also find already cooked brown rice in the freezer section by the vegetables or in shelf-stable pouches in the rice aisle.
  • If you don't have a lid for your casserole—no worries. Simply cover with aluminum foil.
