    Place zucchini and onion in microwavable dish; drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Cover with plastic wrap; microwave on High 7 to 8 minutes or until the zucchini is just tender and has released much of its liquid. Drain; place in slow cooker.
  • 3

    Toward end of cooking, toss remaining cracker crumbs with remaining melted butter. Toast cracker crumbs in skillet until just golden and crisp. Stir in remaining cheese and the parsley. At end of cook time, turn off slow cooker; remove cover, and sprinkle toasted cracker crumb mixture over top of casserole. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

  • You can mix the crumb topping ingredients together and add them at the beginning of cooking -- you will lose the crunchy texture but it will still be a nice, buttery topping for this dish.
  • If you don’t want to use Cheddar, Parmesan cheese is a lovely, nutty addition!
  • Try mixing some yellow summer squash with the zucchini for a colorful casserole.
