How to make Zucchini Pasta Casserole

One of my favorite things to shred zucchini is my food processor. I don’t have anything fancy, just this simple food processor with a shred blade. It actually takes me longer to clean the machine than to shred the vegetable! When that’s the case I shred extra and save it in the freezer so I can have lemon chocolate chip zucchini cake whenever I want!
